I am an Assistant Professor (Biträdande Universitetslektor) at Lund University (LTH), where I joined the CRYSPY lab (CRYprography, Security and PrivacY) in 2020. Prior to coming to Lund, I have been a post doctoral researcher at the Aarhus crypto group. I completed my Ph.D. in 2019, at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering in Chalmers University of Technology (Göteborg - Sweden). You can find a detailed pdf-version of my CV here.
I like research that addresses open challenges and makes feasible what was not feasible before.
I am actively working on:
multi-key and homomorphic cryptosystems,
signatures with advanced properties,
private & compact digital storage solutions,
verifiable computation, and
private location proximity testing. Previously, I also worked on the Signal protocol, Biometric Authentication and Distance-Bounding Protocols.
