About
I'm a 50%-time Lecturer at I.Kant Baltic Federal University and acting head of the Lab "Mathematical methods in information security". I'm also 25% Post-Doc at Ruhr University Bochum.My research interests include practical and theoretical cryptanalysis of lattice-based primitives. I also like to apply quantum techniques to speed up cryptanalytic algroithms for solving problems that underlie lattice- and code-based schemes.
I received my PhD from Ruhr University Bochum at the Chair of Cryptology and IT Secturity, advised by Prof. Dr. Alexander May. Then I was a PostDoc at ENS Lyon in AriC team supervised by Prof. Dr. Damien Stehlé.
