About Me

I'm a tenured faculty member (Forschungsgruppenleiter) at the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy and a part-time professor (hoogleraar) for cryptographic engineering in the Digital Security Group at Radboud University.
Since October 2018 I am working on the project EPOQUE – Engineering post-quantum cryptography funded by the European Commission through an ERC Starting grant.
Until November 2012 I was a postdoc in the Research Center for Information Technology Innovation and the Institute of Information Science of Academia Sinica.
Before that, I was postdoc in the Department of Electrical Engineering of National Taiwan University within the Intel-NTU Connected Context Computing Center.
Before that, I was a postdoc in the Institute of Information Science at Academia Sinica.
Before that, I was a Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology.

In January 2011, I completed my Ph.D. at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Coding and Cryptology Group under the supervision of Tanja Lange and Daniel J. Bernstein.

In 2006, I finished my Diplom in computer science at RWTH Aachen University at the Institute for Theoretical Information Technology under the supervision of Rudolf Mathar and Michael Naehrig.

I am an elected member of the IACR Board of Directors; a member of the IACR CHES Steering Committee and liason to the IACR Board of Directors; a member of the IACR RWC Steering Committee; a member of the organizing committee of the annual Workshop on High-Assurance Crypto Software; and a member of the scientific committee of the annual Summerschool on Real-World Crypto and Privacy.

I'm a member of the advisory boards of Bitmark Inc., PQShield, Neutrality, and SciEngines.
