Sabine Oechsner

I am a PhD student in the Cryptography and Security Group at Aarhus University, Denmark. My advisors are Ivan Damgård and Jesper Buus Nielsen. 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 in Japan. Currently, I am visiting Alon Rosen and Elette Boyle at IDC Herzliya.


I am interested in cryptographic primitives and protocols that can be used for secure multiparty computation, in particular efficient zero-knowledge proofs and their applications. Moreover, I study the formalization of cryptographic proofs in the proof assistant EasyCrypt.

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.
