Picture of me

My name is Estuardo and I am a Postdoc at the department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis at Aalto University in Finland. I recently obtained my PhD under the supervision of Chris Brzuska, co-advised by Wil Michiels. My research focuses on definitional studies for white-box cryptography, as well as on the design of automated attacks on white-box cryptographic implementations. Before, I was an employee at the Leibniz Institute for High Performance Microelectronics IHP, where I worked on the design and implementation of hardware accelerators for elliptic curve cryptography in the light of side channel analysis attacks.

I've also collaborated as a teaching assistant at the Cryptography course at Aalto University and at the Introduction to Security course at TU Hamburg.

Below you'll find a list of my publications, internships and further research activities from recent years.
