Sabine Oechsner

I am a Postdoc in the Logic and Semantics group and the Cryptography and Security group at Aarhus University, Denmark, working with Bas Spitters and Jesper Buus Nielsen. Previously, I was a PhD student in the Cryptography and Security group at Aarhus University under the supervision of Ivan Damgård. I hold an M.Sc. in Computer Science from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany.

In Fall 2017, I was a long-term visitor at NTT Secure Platform Laboratories, and in Spring 2018 at IDC Herzliya, visiting Elette Boyle.


I am interested in cryptographic protocols and their security models and proofs, with a focus on secure multiparty computation. In the past, I also worked on zero-knowledge proofs and ring signatures.

How to pronounce my last name

The combination OE is an old spelling of the German letter Ö. The pronounciation is similar to the Scandinavian Ø or the French Œ, or the vowel in the English word learn. If you are in doubt, use O instead. The CHS in the middle of my name is pronounced like X or KS in English.
