VIOLETTA WEGER
TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF MUNICH
ABOUT
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Technical University of Munich in the group of Professor Antonia Wachter-Zeh. I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematics under the supervision of Professor Joachim Rosenthal at the University of Zurich. My research interests include cryptography, algebraic coding theory and number theory.
We are happy to announce the second edition of the ACT Summer School
and Coding theory and cryptography- a conference in honor of Joachim Rosenthal's 60th birthday
