Ege Cem Kirci

I am a first-year Ph.D. student at ETH in the Networked Systems Group led by Laurent Vanbever. My focus is on cyber security and privacy in the context of computer networks. More specifically, I work on novel attack and defence mechanisms that can be enabled or leveraged by network programmability.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017) and also in Industrial Engineering (2017) both from Koç University; in my hometown Istanbul, Turkey.

I received my Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (2020) from ETH Zurich, where I spent most of my time at the NSG.

Before coming to Zurich, I spent a semester as an exchange student at Northwestern University, in Illinois, USA.
