Research interests

My general interest is in practical cryptography. I worked on practicall issues of cryptanalysis and post-quantum cryptography. I am also interested in mathematical aspects of cryptography and security.

Educational background

I graduated with a BSc in Mathematics from Imperial College in 2014, and with an MSc in Applied Mathematics, always from Imperial, in 2016. Throughout, I focused on mathematical physics while keeping an interest in algebra, differential geometry, and computational mathematics.

Other work

During the years I worked as a software developer, focusing on frontend (JS, CSS), backend (NodeJS, PHP), and mobile (Cordova) development.
