Representation theory and its interactions with algebraic combinatoric and supergeomety.

I am a Full Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Ottawa, and a former Alexander von Humboldt Fellow. I am interested in applications of Lie algebras, root systems, and finite groups of Lie type in cryptography and quantum information theory.

Representation Theory, Post-Quantum Cryptography

I earned my PhD (MIT) in 1998, and was a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow (uAlberta) before coming to uOttawa, where I am now a Full Professor. I specialize in the representation theory of p-adic groups, which provides me with a plethora of algebraic tools with which to explore mathematical and post-quantum cryptography.

Anne Broadbent

Quantum Cryptography

I hold a B.Sc. from l'Université de Moncton as well as an M.Sc. from the University of Ottawa. As an undergraduate student, I did research in the field of particle physics phenomenology before shifting to quantum cryptography for my graduate studies. In my free time, I enjoy solving crossword puzzles.

Delaram Kahrobaei

Post-quantum Cryptography

I am a PhD student under Professor Kahrobaei at the University of York. As a maths graduate I am effectively an applied algebraist; my research deals with the cryptanalysis of proposed group-based crypto schemes. Out of hours I collect vinyl records and drink ale.

Monica Nevins

Post-quantum cryptography

Maria is an M.Sc student working with Dr. Nevins. Maria’s research focuses on a central problem in quantum computing - the Hidden Subgroup Problem (HSP). Her M.Sc thesis is centred around a special case of the HSP - the Dihedral HSP. Maria’s research interests include classical cryptography, quantum-safe cryptography and quantum computing. In her spare time, Maria enjoys undertaking various outreach activities.

Quantum Cryptography

Hello! I’m Sherry (she/her), and I am currently working on a research project with Prof. Broadbent and Prof. Adams about quantum password-based authentication. I did my undergrad in Software Engineering at the University of Ottawa. I love watching kdramas, reading, and cuddling with my dog in sun puddles.

Monica Nevins

Cryptography

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Ottawa interested in algebra and probability theory. Under the supervision of Professor Nevins, I have studied error-correcting codes, in particular quasi-cyclic codes used in the BIKE cryptosystem. I am pursuing further studies in algebra.

Cryptography

I’m currently an undergraduate student at the University of Ottawa. In a cryptographic setting, I’m interested in the use of error-correcting codes to form cryptographic schemes, most notably through the McEliece PKC. I also have more diverse interests in probability theory and financial mathematics, specifically in credit risk models.
