Personal website

I am currently the CEO of nextAuth, a spin-off company of KU Leuven on secure and user friendly mobile authentication.

Before that I was a researcher at the COSIC group, department of Electrical Engineering, KU Leuven. My main research topic is security and cryptography for the real world. More specifically I worked on the analysis and design of protocols, human-computer interaction in security and, in general, overall security architectures and solutions for challenging applications such as authentication and voting. I was involved in several large research projects and also in applied projects, such as the development of authentication solutions and online and paper-trail elections.
