Jeroen van de Graaf
Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais
Research Areas: Cryptography
Bio: Jeroen van de Graaf started research in cryptography in 1985 under supervision of David Chaum at the CWI. In 1998 he obtained a PhD from the Université de Montréal (1998), on quantum cryptography. In recent years his focus is on the theoretical and applied aspects of cryptographic protocols. He is particularly interested in unconditional privacy, including topics such as: quantum cryptography; protocols based on noise; authentication based on signal reconciliation; election and mixing protocols; general two- and multi-party computation; randomness etc. Many of these protocol borrow techniques from information theory and coding theory. Since March 2011 he is assistant professor at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais.
