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 computer, most of my work focuses on coding theory (protecting data from errors), cryptography (protecting data from bad guys) and their intersection.

I am looking to hire a PhD student! The deadline for applications is 15 December, 2022. Please see this ad if you are interested.

Prior to joining the UvA, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Cryptology Group at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), hosted by Ronald Crmaer, 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.
