About Gustavo Banegas

Currently, I am senior cryptographer working at Qualcomm France in Sophia Antipolis, France.

Previously, I was a Post-Doc working with Benjamin Smith at the GRACE Team at INRIA in France.

From November of 2019 until November of 2020, I was a Post-Doc Researcher at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.

In the middle of November of 2019, I finished my PhD at the Eindhoven University of Technology under the supervision of Tanja Lange and Daniel J. Bernstein. In my PhD, I was a fellow of ECRYPT-NET, an EU-financed project within the “Horizon 2020” program, thanks to one of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. You can find my PhD Thesis: “Selected constructive and destructive approaches to post-quantum cryptography” in this link.

In the beginning of October (2015), I defended my master thesis under the supervision of Ricardo Custódio and Daniel Panario.

In 2012, I finished my diplom in computer science at UFSC (Federal University of Santa Catarina) under the supervision of Ricardo Custódio.
