My research interests lie in the area of homomorphic cryptographic primitives, data authentication, and user privacy. I am particularly fascinated by cryptographic applications of mathematical objects and new construction that may derive from it.

I am actively working on: multi-key and homomorphic cryptosystems, signatures with advanced properties, private & compact digital storage solutions, verifiable computation, and privacy-preserving location proximity testing. Previously, I also worked on the Signal protocol, Biometric Authentication and Distance-Bounding Protocols.

‘My’ PhD Students

I have the honor to mentor, co-supervise and do research with some very impressive Ph.D. candidates:

My Research Ethics

I believe that good research is a combination of real-world questions, innovative ideas, and fruitful collaborations. In the last period, I had the chance to work with several bright minds and inspiring researchers including Dario Fiore, Andrei Sabelfeld, Diego Aranha, Sophia Yakoubov, and Mathias Hall-Andersen.
