I currently hold a personal Veni grant from NWO, which I am taking with me to Denmark via the "Money Follows Researcher" scheme.

I have served/am serving on the program committees of a number of great conferences, including SAC 2021, PQCrypto 2021, ITC 2021, Eurocrypt 2021, QIP2020 and QCrypt 2020.

About me

I am an assistant professor of cryptography at DTU Compute, the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technical University of Denmark. My research areas are post-quantum and quantum cryptography, and quantum information theory. I find the interplay of the algebraic structure of quantum mechanics and the computational framework of modern cryptography, as well as representation-theoretic and combinatorial techniques, particularly interesting.

I hold a PhD degree in mathematics, which I obtained from the Department of Mathematical Sciences at University of Copenhagen under the supervision of Matthias Christandl. Before that, I studied physics at University of Freiburg where my M.Sc. thesis was supervised by David Gross.

At Eurocrypt 2021, Andreas Hülsing and I organized an affiliated workshop on quantum techniques for provable security. We had 6 great talks about various topics relating to the quantum random oracle model, quantum query complexity and quantum rewinding. You can look at the slides and watch videos of the talks, see https://quiques.huelsing.net/.
