My name is Friedhelm Victor (Friedhelm is the first name :smirk:) and I’m a PhD candidate at TU Berlin, researching primarily on the intersections of blockchain, data science and privacy. Most of my works involve blockchain-based cryptoassets and the Ethereum network.

More generally, I’m interested in:

  • Data Mining
  • Network Analysis
  • Privacy & Anonymity
  • Fraud Detection

Prior to pursuing a PhD, I’ve completed a Dual Master Degree in Computer Science at Technische Universität Berlin and at the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.


Apr 26, 2022 I’ve co-organized a cryptoasset analytics workshop and tutorial at TheWebConf’22 !
