I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security, in Saarbrucken Germany. I am in the Research Group of Professor Antoine Joux, working in the context of the ERC-funded project Almacrypt (Algorithmic and Mathematical Cryptology).
I received my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Maryland College Park, USA, under the supervision of Professor Lawrence Washington. My research lies in the area of Algebraic and Computational Number Theory and Arithmetic Geometry, and their applications to Cryptography.
I am currently working on various projects; either own or joint work (please see my collaborators' names in the "Publications & Preprints" page). One of those projects involves the study of a certain family of elliptic curves and their twists, in relation to the Discrete Logarithm Problem. Another elliptic-curve-related project concerns the study of elliptic curves and their isogeny graphs over finite fields whose characteristics are related in terms of the Hasse bound. A slightly different project is related to the study of Abstract groups in Cryptography, in the classical and post-quantum setting. Furthermore, I always enjoy looking for constructive approaches that realise elements of the Tate-Shafarevich group of elliptic curves and give curves that violate the Hasse principle.
