Bor de Kock

Hi! My name is Bor and I'm an assistant professor of cryptology at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. My primary research interest, and the topic of my PhD thesis to be defended spring 2023, is Post-Quantum Key Exchange and its various applications, but I am also interested in other applications of (post-quantum) cryptography.


Some papers out there: And my Master's Thesis:

Previous education

In Spring 2018 I received a Master of Science degree from Eindhoven University of Technology

Before that, I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands

Other activities

At TU Eindhoven I have been an elected member of the departmental council (at the department of Mathematics and Computer Science) and the university council, for student party Groep-één. At NTNU in Trondheim I was an elected member of the faculty board (at the Faculty of Information Technology and Electical Engineering).

I was on the provincial board of Jonge Socialisten in de PvdA, the youth organization of the Dutch Labour Party and have been involved in GEWIS, the student union for mathematicians and computer scientists, where I have also served as a full-time board member for a year. When I'm not talking about math or politics I play classical music, for instance at symphony orchestra Ensuite or Studentersamfundets Symfoniorkester.
