I am regularly asked as a speaker about cryptography, blockchain and/or privacy. The talks are always adapted to the audience and can be technical or non-technical. However, they are always inspired by a strong theoretical understanding on the one hand and practical, concrete expertise in the government field on the other hand. Besides my public talks, which are listed below, I also frequently give non-public talks, seminars and workshops.
