Morten Øygarden

Ph.D. Student, SimulaUiB

Morten Øygarden is a Ph.D. Student at SimulaUiB since July 2018, under the supervision of Øyvind Ytrehus and Håvard Raddum. Before this, he completed a master's degree in algebraic geometry at the University of Bergen, with his thesis written on invariants of Abelian varieties. Øygarden’s research area is computational commutative algebra and post-quantum public-key cryptography, with a particular interest in multivariate and rank metric code-based cryptosystems. The Research Council of Norway funds his Ph.D. through the project “Quantum Safe Cryptography for the Internet of Things.”
