Hello! Welcome to my (extremely simple) homepage.
I am Daniel Escudero, I started in May 2017 as a PhD student at the Cryptography and Security group at Aarhus University, Denmark.
I'm currently working under the supervision of Ivan Damgård and Jesper Buus Nielsen.
I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Universidad Nacional de Colombia in 2016 where I had the valuable opportunity to work in a research project on Multivariate Public Key Cryptography during the last two years of my studies.
My research focuses on developing, enhancing, implementing and deploying different cryptographic techniques that allows us to enhace privacy and enforce information security.
I also enjoy research related to the foundations of Cryptography.
I'm particularly interested in the following topics
Interactions between algebra and cryptography, particularly Multivariate Cryptography and Secret Sharing
Secure Multiparty Computation
Provable security and interactions between complexity theory and cryptography
I have also been recently interested in Cryptocurrencies, Quantum Cryptography, interactive proof assistants for cryptographic constructions such as EasyCrypt and how to train Machine Learning models in a privacy-preserving way.
