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 the Research Group Leader 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, anonymous communication, multiparty computation, homomorphic encryption, electronic voting and secure implementation.
I am a member of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
- I am organising a workshop on “Foundations and Applications of Zero-Knowledge Proofs” together with Elizabeth Crites, Markulf Kohlweiss, and Akira Takahashi at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh from September 2nd to 6th, 2024.
- I published an opinion piece in Morgenbladet about end-to-end encryption and surveillance with respect to the new EU proposal Chat Control 2.0 (in Norwegian): EU-kommisjonens forsvar for Chat Control 2.0 bygger på enten løgn eller inkompetanse.
- I am teaching the new course TTM4205 Secure Cryptographic Implementations this fall.
- 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.
