Security for Blockchain Technologies: designing definitions and security notions for blockchain technologies and the development of new applications using blockchain as a platform


Project Description

Blockchain has recently emerged as an exciting and promising technology, with applications ranging from cryptocurrencies to smart properties, from smart contracts to e-voting.
Being at the intersection of number theory, distributed systems, game theory and cryptography, research on blockchain has attracted many talented researchers and is now a hot topic of study.

We are looking for qualified students to work with Dr. Elizabeth Quaglia and other members of the ISG in advancing research on blockchain technology. Of particular interest is the design of definitions and security notions for blockchain (with special focus on anonymity), and the development of new applications using blockchain as a platform. Applicants should have or be expecting to obtain a first class honours degree or a masters degree in Mathematics or similar subject. Ideally, applicants would also have interest (and potentially some experience) in cryptography.

The Information Security Group (ISG) at Royal Holloway, University of London is one of the largest academic security research groups in the world. As a result, the student will benefit from a thriving and dynamic research environment, and may collaborate with PhD students and researchers with interest in the field.

Funding Notes

Particularly welcome are applications from students who satisfy EPSRC’s eligibility requirements (see View Website), since such students may be considered for funding via Royal Holloway’s Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security (View Website). Applications are welcome from international students, but funding for such applicants will be limited and very competitive. We particularly welcome female applicants.
