Research Interests

Ignacio’s main research interest lies in the area of cryptography, especially secure multiparty computation, secret sharing and other cryptographic protocols. He is also interested in the connection of these topics with the areas of error-correcting codes, abstract algebra (finite fields, algebraic number theory) and algebraic complexity.
