Dr. James Howe Cryptographic Engineer and Researcher



I’m a cryptographer, with a focus on practical implementations and cryptanalysis. You can find a link to my publications on Google Scholar.

For 2.5 years I was employed as a Cryptography Engineer at PQShield Ltd, a small spin-out company from the University of Oxford. Previously, I was a post-doc at the University of Bristol in the SCA / Crypto group. Other previous research positions and education history can be found in my CV.

Research Interests

The focus of my research is mainly based around (but not limited to) post-quantum cryptography, in particular lattice-based cryptography, and investigating them with respect to optimised hardware designs, software designs, side-channel attacks, fault attacks, and countermeasures.
