I am the co-inventor of Elliptic Curve Cryptography, and the co-inventor of a widely used data compression algorithm. I'm a fellow of IEEE, IACR and ACM, and the recipient of the RSA Excellence in Mathematics Award, the Eduard Rhein Foundation Technology Award, the Levchin Prize, the IEEE Third Millennium medal and the Certicom Technology Award. I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics (Number Theory) from Harvard University.
