Assistant Professor

Kathrin Hövelmanns

Department / Institute
Mathematics and Computer Science


I am a tenured assistant professor in TU/e's Applied and Provable Security group. My research is driven by the question how to mitigate the threat posed by quantum computers to how sensitive data is being communicated today. (E.g., wiring money, logging in to a webpage, exchanging sensitive information like medical data or company/governmental/military secrets, using Whatsapp…)

Before joining TU/e, I finished my PhD in the Cryptology group at Ruhr University Bochum under the supervision of Eike Kiltz. Before that, I studied Mathematics at University Duisburg Essen
