My name is Michael Rademacher, I’m a researcher and lecturer in the field of computer networks and security. I am currently working for UAS Bonn-Rhein-Sieg and Fraunhofer FKIE.

I have spend a lot of time investigating (wireless) network protocols and security for my PhD. I have presented my research at major conferences on the topics of Secure (Wireless) Communication, Software Defined Networking and Wireless Sensor Networks. I gladly pass on knowledge about everything technology related.
