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][2]

Education and career[edit]

Lange earned a diploma in mathematics in 1998 from the Technical University of Braunschweig.[3] She completed her Ph.D. in 2001 at the Universität Duisburg-Essen. Her dissertation, jointly supervised by Gerhard Frey and YoungJu Choie, concerned Efficient Arithmetic on Hyperelliptic Curves.[4]

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.[3]

At Eindhoven, she chairs the coding theory and cryptology group[5] and is scientific director of the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information.[6] She is also the coordinator of PQCRYPTO, a European multi-university consortium to make electronic communications future-proof against threats such as quantum factorization.[1] She is one of the main authors of The Handbook of Elliptic and Hyperelliptic Curve Cryptography, published in 2005.[7]
