Tanja Lange is a German cryptographer and number theorist at the Eindhoven University of Technology. She is known for her research on post-quantum cryptography.[1]

Education and career[edit]

Lange earned a diploma in mathematics in 1998 from the Technical University of Braunschweig.[2] She completed her Ph.D. in 2001 at the Universität Duisburg-Essen. Her dissertation, jointly supervised by Gerhard Frey and YoungJu Choie, was Efficient Arithmetic on Hyperelliptic Curves.[3]

After postdoctoral studies at Ruhr University Bochum, she became an associate professor at the Technical University of Denmark in 2005. She moved to the Eindhoven University of Technology as a full professor in 2007.[2]

At Eindhoven, she chairs the coding theory and cryptology group[4] and is scientific director of the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information.[5] She as also one of the coordinator of a European multi-university consortium to make electronic communications future-proof against threats such as quantum factorization.[1]
