Currently, I work as the System Archiect at MapCase GmbH , Mainz, Germany. I finished my doctoral studies at Computer Science Department of Technical University Munich. I finished it with Magna Cum Laude, under the guidance of Prof. Ernst W Mayr, at the Chair for Efficient Algorithms.

Main focus of my thesis was Counting in the Jacobian of (genus 2) hyperelliptic curves. The thesis explains how we are making use of the traditionally known details of the jacobian of a hyperelliptic curve can be used along side the new developments in Group Order counting to devise some faster methods.

I also worked on Groebner Basis and Polynomial Ideals. Even when Groebner Bases are not popular amond cryptographers, we had ideas for a method which uses GB for some cryptographic protocols.

You can have download my Thesis if you wish.
