I am currently a postdoc at EPFL in Switzerland hosted by Serge Vaudenay working in the area of information security and cryptography. Before this I was a Postdoc at Aarhus University with Ivan Damgaard and a PhD researcher at KU Leuven in Belgium advised by Bart Preneel. During my PhD I was particular interested in leakage resilient cryptography. In an earlier life, I was working as a business & technology consultant mainly for the financial sector, and was studying Computer Science & Business at University of Mannheim in Germany.
