I am an associate professor in the Digital Security Group at Radboud University Nijmegen, partially funded by an NWO Vidi grant. Before, I was an NWO Veni postdoctoral researcher at Radboud University, as well as an FWO postdoctoral researcher at KU Leuven in the COSIC research group. I finished my PhD, entitled Provable Security of Cryptographic Hash Functions, in 2013 under supervision of Bart Preneel and Vincent Rijmen. Before, I completed my Master's thesis on Encrypted certificate schemes and their security and privacy analysis at Philips, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
My research interests include all aspects of cryptology, including symmetric primitives (such as hash functions and block ciphers), provable security, cryptographic protocols (such as digital signature schemes, credential schemes, and multiparty computation), and network applications.
