Dipl.-Ing. B.Tech.

Secure Systems, PhD Student

Aikata is a full-time Ph.D. student and part-time traveler. She received her Master's degree (with distinction) in Computer Science from TU Graz in 2022 and her master thesis, titled “Efficient Polynomial Arithmetic Architecture for Saber and Dilithium” received the 1st prize in the TU Graz Forum Technology and Society 2022. Now she intends to explore the applications of lattice-based cryptography and Europe during her Ph.D.
