Biography

I am an ALGANT PhD student at Mathematisch Instituut, Universiteit Leiden and Cryptology Research Group, Centrum Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI). My PhD research deals with developing new techniques to solve a system of multivariate polynomial equations over a finite field and its application in cryptanalysis. My promotor is Ronald Cramer and my supervisor is Marc Stevens.

Research

My research primarily focuses on developing algebraic techniques to find a solution for a system of multivariate polynomial equations over a finite field. One of the main approach to solve such system is by computing a Groebner basis of its corresponding polynomial ideal. This approach, which was originally proposed in 1965, is considered to be the most well-studied computational technique to solve multivariate polynomial systems. Moreover with the advent of multivariate-based public key cryptography as a candidate for post-quantum cryptography, it is critical to understand how Groebner bases algorithms behave against algebraically constructed system of polynomial equations.
