I am a one person company (OPC) that does research in both cryptography and cryptanalysis with the aim to create new products and/ or services.
I was born on December 31 in Lisbon, Portugal. Since my father was a career diplomat, I lived in many different countries.
I attended the American International School of Lisbon.
I obtained a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Connecticut in the USA.
I did my military service in Portugal.
I enrolled as a graduate student at the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon. I completed all course work for the master degree in Physics while working as a teaching assistant. I was for a short period a scientific associate at CERN.
I worked as an engineer for Samsung Corporation in Portugal.
I worked as an engineer for several smaller companies in Italy.
I presented a poster abstract entitled, “The distribution of prime numbers hidden within a fractal binary pattern” at the Fractal 2004 conference in Canada.
I attended the NKS summer school which took place at Brown University in the USA. My project concerned the Collatz problem.
I worked as an independent consultant in cryptography.
My book was published in Israel by Freund Publishing House Ltd. and dedicated in memory of my father.
I started my own company and attended the IEEE 26-th Convention of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in Israel where I presented two papers “Carmichael numbers and a new primality test” and “Factoring semiprimes and possible implications for RSA”.
I worked as an external collaborator for several large companies and later attended the Hacking Defined Experts (HDE 39) course in Israel.
I invented a new technology called 3D cryptography.
I worked as a consultant for special projects in Italy, USA and Israel.
I invented a new technology called 3D integer factorization; I created GIFT (Graphical Integer Factorization Technique) and published a paper entitled “The definition of a cyberweapon” on my website.
