Nicolas Resch

Hello! I am an assistant professor with the Theoretical Computer Science Group from the Informatics' Institute of the University of Amsterdam. While I have broad interests in much of theoretical computer science, most of my work focuses on coding theory (protecting data from errors), cryptography (protecting data from bad guys) and their intersection.

Prior to joining the UvA, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Cryptology Group at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), hosted by Ronald Cramer, where I learned most of what I know about cryptography. I obtained my PhD from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), where I was fortunate to be advised by Venkatesan Guruswami and Bernhard Haeupler. There, I mostly focused on coding theory and related notions in pseudorandomness.
