Cornelius Ihle is an industrial Ph.D. candidate at Daimler AG in Stuttgart. His work focuses specifically on benefits through decentralisation in academic and corporate services. Through his work on UAV communication systems, he started appreciating the superior resilience of distributed structures and shortly after became a decentralisation advocate. Since then he was involved in decentralisation projects in the mobile industry and contributed to the field of distributed identity management.


Cornelius Ihle focuses on decentralised systems that can be used to detect copyright infringements and plagiarisms in the corporate and academic sector. His goal is to remove barriers in the Open Science and Open Source community and promote a sharing community within academia and his affiliated company.

Research Topics:

  • Distributed Ledger Technologies
  • Decentralised Storage
  • Content Addressed Filesystems
  • Zero Knowledge Proofs
  • Decentralised Identifiers (DIDs)
