ERC Starting Grant for Prof. Antonia Wachter-Zeh

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a Starting Grant to Antonia Wachter-Zeh. Her project inCREASE (Coding for Security and DNA Storage) deals with protecting data from unauthorized access and errors. For example, advances in quantum computers could mean that current encryption methods may soon be insecure. Prof. Wachter-Zeh is working on new encryption methods using algebraic codes that could help to block this threat. A second application of her research is storing data efficiently…
