Hi! =)

My name is Elena Pagnin, I am a PhD Student at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering in Chalmers University of Technology (Göteborg - Sweden). I am part of the Chalmers Security Lab which is the largest research group on security in Scandinavia.

I defended on September 7th, 2018. From February 2019 I will join the crytpo_group at Aarhus University (Denmark) as a postdoctoral researcher.

My PhD is a blend of theoretical cryptography and cryptographic protocols for real-world applications. In particular, I have worked on:

I believe that good research is a combination of real-world questions, innovative ideas, and fruitful collaborations. In the last period, I had the chance to work with several bright minds and inspiring researchers as Dario Fiore (my co-supervisor), Andrei Sabelfeld (my supervisor), Cristina Onete, Carlo Brunetta, Pablo Picazo-Sanchez.

Less recently, I collaborated other wonderful people including Luca Nizzardo, Aysajan Abidin and Kesuke Tanaka Sensei.
