MSc in Computer Science - Major: Information Security
Title of Master Thesis: A Software Simulation Toolkit for Quantum Key Distribution and Information Leakage
Supervisor: Peter Y. A. Ryan

A web application (front-end) powered by the developed toolkit is available at: https://www.qkdsimulator.com

Focus of PhD Research in a Nutshell:

My research lies in the area of quantum information assurance and cryptography, under the supervision of Peter Y. A. Ryan. The main focus of the research is the development of a better modelling framework for the design and analysis of QuAKE (Quantum Authenticated Key Establishment) protocols as well as exploring novel applications of quantum phenomena to information assurance.

Research Interests: Quantum cryptography, quantum computation/information, quantum mechanics, cryptography, algorithmics, complexity theory, mathematical modelling, evolutionary computation, design and implementation of simulation software
