** Sean Murphy **

I am a Professor in the School of Mathematics and Information Security at Royal Holloway (University of London). Please note that I do not supervise internships.

**Books**

*Springer*, ISBN 0-387-24363-1, 2006.

*Oxford University Press*, ISBN 0-19-280315-8, 2002.

**Research**

My academic research concentrates on mathematical cryptology. I was a leader of the NESSIE project, a European project to assess cryptographic primitives for future possible standardisation. I also helped set up the original ECRYPT project, a European Network of Excellence in Cryptology. Some of my publications are listed below.

**Algebraic Techniques in Cryptology**

I am interested in the use of algebraic techniques in symmetric cryptology, particularly the analysis of the (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), and I was Principal Investigator of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) project Security Analysis of the Advanced Encryption Standard.
