VLSI theory, design and applications


Alessandra Dolmeta graduated in Electronic Engineering in 2020 and in Microelectronics in 2022, both at the Politecnico di Torino. During her master's thesis, she focused on the study of post-quantum cryptographic algorithms, in particular CRYSTALS-Kyber, developing a hardware accelerator dedicated to the execution of SHA3 primitives. He is now doing his PhD in Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin, in collaboration with Telsy. The main focus of his research activity is the design of hardware architectures for post-quantum cryptography integrated on RISC-V, with the aim of speeding up and optimizing PQC algorithms.
