I am a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Mathematics
(MAT) at Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Here are my contact details.
I have completed my PhD in the area of hash functions in the Information Security Institute
(ISI) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia in June 2007.
The title of my PhD thesis is "Cryptographic Hash Functions: Cryptanalysis, Design and Applications".
Some of the many facets of Information Security that I am interested in are:
- Applications of Cryptology
- Analysis and Design of Block and Stream Ciphers
- Formal Analysis and Design of Cryptographic Protocols
- Side-Channel Cryptanalysis
- Public Key Cryptography
- Mobile Systems Security
- Legal Issues in Information Security
