About Me

picture taken by M. RudnayaI am working as senior research consultant for the European Network for Cyber Security (ENCS), a not-for-profit organization in Europe whose main objective is to come up with practical security solutions for critical infrastructures.

My tasks are divided between industrial research and consulting for critical-infrastructure owners, mostly European utilities concerned with electricity distribution.

My current research concentrates on security architectures for the smart grid, specifically related to substation automation. I’m involved in the FP7 project SEGRID (start date: October 2014).

  • I was a postdoc in the crypto section at the Technical University of Denmark. During a leave of absence I went as visiting researcher to the Cryptography Research Group at Microsoft Research in Redmond.
  • Before I was a research associate in the Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the United States (NIST project “Post-Quantum Cryptography” led by Daniel J. Bernstein).
  • Before I was a Ph.D. student in the Coding and Cryptology group at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

These pages deal mainly with my research while being a PhD student and postdoc. Topics: code-based cryptography and elliptic-curve cryptography.
