I organized the Norwegian Crypto Seminar 2020 together with Kristian Gjøsteen and Martin Strand.

I’m on the organizing committee for Eurocrypt 2022 in Trondheim. Colin Boyd is the General Chair.

I have been a subreviewer at CT-RSA 2020 (for Jiaxin Pan) and SAC 2020 (for Diego Aranha).


My main supervisor is Professor Kristian Gjøsteen at the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

My co-supervisor is Professor Colin Boyd at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology.

Research Groups

I’m a member of the Algebra Group at the Department of Mathematics and the NTNU Applied Cryptology Lab at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology.

I’m also a member of the COINS Research School of Computer and Information Security for Ph.D. students in Norway.

Research Visits

I’m grateful to Carsten Baum and the Aarhus Crypto Group for hosting me for one week in November 2019.
