Domaines de recherche I am interested in algebra and its applications to communication, specifically to coding theory and cryptography. My recent research focuses on multivariate and elliptic curve cryptography and network coding. Within multivariate cryptography, I give estimates for the complexity of solving polynomial systems over finite fields. The main tool I use in this context are Groebner bases, which I also study from a theoretical point of view. Within network coding, I focus on code constructions, bounds, and the structural study of codes. I recently got interested in physical layer network coding, where I proposed a framework for data transmission which uses tools from commutative algebra.
