Hi! I am a third and final year PhD student in cryptography at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim. My supervisor is Professor Kristian Gjøsteen, and I am a member of the NTNU Applied Cryptology Lab. I am also working part time as a Security and Cryptography Engineer at Pone Biometrics.
My main foci of research are lattice-based cryptography and zero-knowledge protocols. My interests also span the areas of secure multiparty computation, homomorphic encryption, password-authenticated key exchange, electronic voting and anonymous communication.
I graduated from NTNU with a B.Sc. in Mathematics in 2017 and a M.Sc. in Mathematics in 2020, respectively. During my master’s, I spent the academic year 2017-2018 at UC Berkeley, USA. During my PhD, I spent the fall of 2020 visiting Assistant Professor Carsten Baum and Associate Professor Diego Aranha at the Aarhus Crypto Group, Denmark, and I spent the winter 2021/2022 visiting Professor Jonathan Katz at the Maryland Cybersecurity Center, USA.
I have previously been working as a project manager at Lær Kidsa Koding (2015-17), as a university college teacher at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (2017-20), and I had a 3 months internship in 2018 at the IoT-security company Intrinsic-ID in Eindhoven, NL.
I am a member of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
