Jana Sotáková
I am a PhD student of Christian Schaffner, Serge Fehr and Peter Bruin at Institute of Logic, Language and Computational the University of Amsterdam (ILLC) and a part of the QuSoft Crypto group. I started my PhD in 2019 and expect to graduate in 2023.I am working on:
 postquantum cryptography, especially isogenybased cryptography,
 computational number theory,
 quantum algorithms used for cryptanalysis.
News
 (7/23) I gave a talk at the studentorganized ANTS summer school on
"Elliptic curves, isogenies, and endomorphism rings".
The talk is available on Youtube and the writeup is here (rough draft but includes references and comments).
 (6/03) I gave a talk at the Linfoot number theory seminar in Bristol. The slides or writeup
 (6/03) I will be at the Isogenybased cryptography summer school in Bristol, December 1418 2020.
 (3/10)
I will be giving a talk about my work in the afternoon QSC session of the
Dutch Mathematical Congress (NMC). Links to the abstract and for the conference schedule.Unfortunately, the NMC has been cancelled but might still happen at a different date.  (2/14) Breaking DDH with genus theory with Wouter Castryck and Fre Vercauteren is out! The eprint article is
here.
For a cool explanation see this blogpost by Steven Galbraith or Luca de Feo's take on Twitter!
 (1/20) I will be a TA for the course on Supersingular Isogeny Graphs by Kristin Lauter during
the
Park City Mathematical Institute 2020
in July 2020. (7/23) The program has been rescheduled to July, 2022.  I was a visiting graduate student at the The Quantum Wave in Computing
semester program at the Simons Center from Jan 20 to Feb 7, 2020.
