Maria Corte-Real Santos

I am currently a second year PhD student, part of the CDT for Cybersecurity and the Information Security group at University College London. My main interests are post-quantum cryptography, specifically isogeny-based protocols and applications. My main supervisors are Philipp Jovanovic and Sarah Meiklejohn.

Before starting my PhD, I completed my Undergraduate and Master’s degree in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, specialising in Algebraic Number Theory and Elliptic Curves.

I am passionate about communicating cryptography and mathematics to others, and have written a series of blog posts on isogeny-based cryptography, as well as giving a number of outreach talks to STEM students.
