About me

I received the B.S. degree at University of Cagliari in pure Mathematics and the M.Sc. degree at University of Trento in Coding Theory and Cryptography. I am now a PhD candidate in Computer Security at Univeristy of Bergen. I am always interested in hearing from colleagues, other cryptography fans, or just interesting creative folk, so feel free to contact me.

Hobbies: juggling, surfing, hiking, coding.

Research interests

> Cryptoanalysis on LWE
> Lattice-Based Cryptography
