I am a Principal Researcher at the Cryptography Research Center in TII and a Research Group Leader in the Computer Science Department at TU Darmstadt, where I lead the Cryptography and Network Security Group. My main area of research is cryptography, with an emphasis on real-world applications and rigorous security analysis. Previously I held postdoctoral positions in the Cryptoplexity Group at TU Darmstadt, Royal Holloway University of London, and the University of Maryland. I earned my PhD from Royal Holloway in 2014 under the supervision of Kenny Paterson. I hold an MSc in Information Security from Royal Holloway and a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Malta.
