She joined the IT-Security Master program at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany, and then transferred to Skoltech. This year, Olga graduated from Skoltech with a Master of Science degree in IT.
Olga’s research interest is in data security and privacy. She studied the security of Near Field Communication (NFC) contactless payment systems, worked on a transferrable e-cash implementation for smartphones and privacy preserving NFC-payments for e-mobility. Furthermore, she investigated secret key generation mechanisms in wireless networks through physical security.
