Hi! I am an Associate Professor in Cryptology at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, where I am a permanent member of the NTNU Applied Cryptology Lab.
I am also a Security and Cryptography Expert at the cybersecurity company Pone Biometrics.
My main foci of research are lattice-based cryptography and zero-knowledge protocols. My interests also span the areas of post-quantum cryptography, secure multiparty computation, homomorphic encryption, electronic voting and anonymous communication.
I am a member of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
- I am on the program committee for E-Vote-ID 2023 (deadline May 15th), Latincrypt 2023 (deadline May 26th), PETS 2024 (first deadline May 31st, 2023) and WAHC 2023 (deadline July 7th). Submit your best voting / crypto / privacy / FHE papers!
- Our paper Verifiable Mix-Nets and Distributed Decryption for Voting from Lattice-Based Assumptions is accepted at ACM CCS 2023. This is joint work with Diego F. Aranha, Carsten Baum and Kristian Gjøsteen.
- I started as an Associate Professor in Cryptology at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology at NTNU on September 1st, 2022.
- Our project “OffPAD – Optimizing balance between high security and usability” got funded 16M NOK by the Norwegian Research Council for research on lightweight and PQ crypto.
I support the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Tor Project and the Signal Foundation.
