Chen-Mou Cheng received his BS and MS in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 1996 and 1998, respectively, and his PhD in Computer Science from Harvard University in 2007. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering of National Taiwan University in 2007, where he is currently an Assistant Professor.
His main research area is in cryptographic hardware and embedded systems (CHES), as well as electronic system-level (ESL) design. Currently, his main research activities focus on the design and analysis of efficient algorithms to solve several important problems arising from cryptology, as well as the development and implementation of these algorithms on massively parallel computers. These problems include solving systems of polynomial equations over finite fields, integer factorization, elliptic-curve discrete logarithm, and lattice reduction.
