Open Bachelor and Master Theses Topics

While I generally prefer to discuss theses ideas personally to find a topic that fits personal skills, I also provide a list of currently open abstracts. However, I am not limited to that list and open for any other interesting ideas. If you are interested in my research area, please follow our instructions here.


  • Security and Anonymity Evaluation of Existing Voting Smart Contracts
    The thesis presents EVM smart contracts that implement secure voting, anonymous voting, or both. They can be found by searching for research paper implementations (that propose blockchain-based voting), by manual search at Github (or other repositories), or with automated blockchain analysis. At the end, the security and anonymity properties will be evaluated and compared with actual insights from the blockchain transactions.
  • How to Enable Voters without Blockchain Expertise to Participate on Blockchain-based Voting
    Blockchain-based voting has the potential to improve the transparency of online votings. As it turns out, blockchains rely on complex software and require a significant amount of technical expertise. For example, voters must install and synchronize a blockchain client, as well as setup a wallet with sufficient funds for transaction fees. The goal is to propose a secure way of outsourcing restraining client requirements and to avoid transaction fees.
