Hi! :wave: My name is Anders Konring. I’m a PhD student in the CISAT department at IT University Copenhagen. My advisor, Bernardo David, is leading our research group where we study:mag:, construct:construction_worker_woman: and analyse:bar_chart: cryptographic protocols - in particular:

  • Blockchain protocols:chains:
  • Consensus algorithms:handshake:
  • Secure multiparty computation:closed_lock_with_key: :dancers:
  • Zero knowledge protocols:man_shrugging: :white_check_mark:

I obtained my MS:man_student: in Computer Science at Aarhus University which included 6 months at ETH Zürich:switzerland: focusing on protocols, systems and network security. I wrote my thesis in collaboration with the company Chainalysis advised by former CTO Jan Møller and Professor Claudio Orlandi from Aarhus University.

I love spending time in nature:herb: - preferably on foot, skis or on a bike climbing mountains🧗. During my competitive years I participated in orienteering🧭, cross country and track running:stopwatch: events around the world. The last couple of years I have participated in several longer skyrunning and trail events.
Recently, I revived my hobby of playing acoustic guitar:guitar:.
