Professor Kenny Paterson becomes new IACR Fellow

Posted on 08/03/2017
Professor Kenny Paterson is to become a Fellow of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), a non-profit scientific organization whose purpose is to further research in cryptology and related fields.
The award is made for Kenny's research and service contributions spanning theory and practice, and for improving the security of widely deployed protocols. Current fellows include eminent cryptographers such as Whit Diffie, Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and ISG Visiting Professor Andy Clark (a former president of the IACR). Kenny will formally receive his fellowship at a ceremony to be held at EUROCRYPT 2017 in Paris in May.

On receiving news of the award, Kenny said "I'm delighted and honoured to receive this award for my work bridging theory and practice in cryptography. I'd like to thank all of my former and current PhD students and postdocs for their collaboration and support over the years - this award is shared with them."
