I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Security&Privacy Unit at TU Wien, Austria. Previously, I was as an Assistant Professor at DTU, Denmark and a Research Expert at the COSIC group at KU Leuven, Belgium. I completed my PhD thesis at KU Leuven, Belgium under the supervision of Prof. Bart Preneel.

My research interests lie in the area cryptography and in particular, design, analysis, provable security and theory of authenitcated encryption schemes, hash functions, forkciphers, and (tweakable) block ciphers. Presently, my focus is on novel cryptographic designs for emerging cryptographic applications.
