Meet Brian Koziel, an aspiring cryptography engineer and current Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. Brian, a native of Ohio, is studying an innovative and exciting field called post-quantum cryptography, the study of cryptography that is secure in the presence of today's digital computers as well as future quantum computers.

Brian just finished his first year of the doctoral program, where he is working with Reza Azarderakhsh, Ph.D., associate professor and I-SENSE Fellow. They are studying new ways to create useful cryptosystems for our digital society, isogeny algorithm optimizations, and hardware and software implementations.
