I studied digital security in the Netherlands, mainly at Radboud University, and partly at TU Eindhoven. In 2020, I completed my Master of Computer Science. My Master's thesis explored options to speed up the post-quantum digital signature scheme SPHINCS by adding a short-term state to an otherwise stateless scheme. The thesis was supervised by Peter Schwabe and Andreas Hülsing.
From April 2013 to Nov. 2016 I was also a software developer at Composite Modeling GmbH & Co. KG, where I built and maintained a Java application as part of a small team.
