Research Interests

Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE)

*) Studying prevalent Fully Homomorphic Encryption schemes, primitives they build upon and their applications
*) Defining minimal requirements for practical FHE usage in i.e. in the Cloud-Storage setting
*) Studying limits on the functionality and practicality of FHE based solutions for various use-cases

The Subset-Sum Problem
*) Probabilistic methods to solve hard instances

Easy to use online privacy tools in digital everyday life
*) Deploying best practices in times of ubiquitous tracking and profiling
*) Discussing the impact of crypto-technology on the (unheeding?) society
