About me

I am a PhD student at the Security and Privacy Group of the University of Birmingham. My supervisors are Sujoy Sinha Roy and Cristophe Petit. I am currently researching lattice-based cryptography with a specific focus on hardware implementations.

Previously, I obtained a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Groningen (Netherlands) and a MSc in Mathematics from the University of Copenhagen, where I wrote my Master's thesis on isogeny-based cryptography under the supervision of Fabien Pazuki.

You can find my CV here.

  • A. Basso, F. Pazuki, On the supersingular GPST attack, preprint (2019).


I am currently a teaching assistant for the course Logic and Computation.
