Steven Galbraith

My research area is computational number theory, public key cryptography and computational algebraic geometry. In particular, my research focus is elliptic curves over finite fields, and computational problems in lattices.

I always have research projects suitable for undergraduates (e.g., BSc(Hons) students) as well as Masters and PhD students. Please email me if you wish to learn more about potential research projects.

Recent/Upcoming events I attended/hope to attend:


Two PhD scholarships in obfuscation and cryptography, application deadline March 12, 2017.

Book on Mathematics of Public Key Cryptography

I have written an advanced graduate textbook in mathematics. Visit the webpage for the book.

Current editorial boards/Programme committees:

Publications and preprints

Slides of talks


The elliptic curve cryptography blog

My postgraduate students and their theses
