No picture!!!  :-( I am an assistant professor (UD) at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. I collaborate with Harry Buhrman's Quantum Computing group at CWI, the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science.

I have been looking for a PhD student in quantum cryptography.

In 2010, I received a personal VENI grant from Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

I did my PhD in the Cryptology Group at BRICS, Computer Science Department of  Aarhus University. My PhD advisors were Louis Salvail and Ivan Damgård.
I studied mathematics at ETH Zürich and wrote my Diploma thesis under supervision of Renato Renner and Ueli Maurer.

My research interests are Quantum Cryptography, Cryptographic Protocols, and (Quantum) Information Theory.

I will be serving in the program committee of EUROCRYPT 2015. I was in the program committee of QCRYPT 2014, SCN 2014, CRYPTO 2013, QCRYPT 2013, ICITS 2012, QIP 2012, QCRYPT 2011, ICITS 2011, WISSEC 2010 and the cryptography track of RSA 09. I was co-organizing a workshop on Cryptography from Storage Imperfections, held in March 2010 at Caltech.

In November 2012, I taught the course Introduction to Modern Cryptography at the University of Amsterdam.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee.
