M. Sc.

Cryptology & Privacy, Research Staff

After graduating with a degree in applied mathematics from Chalmers in Gothenburg, Sweden, i started here at the iaik as a doctoral student in the fall of 2022. My research mainly concerns differential privacy, and more specifically its interplay with other cryptographic techniques, such as multi-party computation, homomorphic encryption and zero-knowledge proofs.  I am also very interested in societal aspects of technology (mostly regarding privacy) and questions exploring how the mathematical guarantees one can get from cryptographic techniques can, and should, reasonably be translated to the languages of other disciplines such as philosophy, ethics and law.

I currently take part in the teaching of PETS and MFC and supervise students in ISW as well as bachelor's and master's theses. In case you have questions about any of those courses or are interested in a project related to differential privacy or mathematical aspects of cryptography more generally, feel free to send me an email or just drop by my office.
