Portrait of Craig Costello

Craig Costello



I am primarily interested in the cryptographic applications of algorithmic number theory and computational algebraic geometry; in particular, curve-, pairing-, and lattice-based cryptography.

I was previously a post-doc in the Cryptography Research Group at MSR, a post-doc in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Technische Universiteit Eindhoven in the Netherlands, a PhD student in the Information Security Institute at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia, twice an intern here at MSR, and a Fulbright Scholar visiting the Number Theory Group at the University of California, Irvine.
