Martijn Stam is a Lecturer in Cryptology. After receiving his PhD from the TU in Eindhoven in 2003, he has worked on a wide range of problems in cryptology, from the implementation of discrete logarithm based cryptosystems to a definitional framework for obfuscation. A common thread throughout is a mathematical look at the problems at hand. His current emphasis is on the provable security of symmetric primitives and modes of operation, such as hash functions. This includes and builds on work for which he received the FSE Best Paper Award both in 2009 and 2010. As of 2011, Dr Stam is serving as Secretary of the IACR, the International Association for Cryptologic Research.
