Qiang Tang

I am a Group Leader in the IT for Innovative Services(ITIS) department at Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), which is a newly established research center in Luxembourg. My research group focuses on building trustworthy data systems. Our main expertise lies in data sharing concepts, cybersecurity and privacy enhancing technologies (PETs), and GRC (goverance, risk and compliance).

At the same time, I am also a scientist. The goal of my research is to bridge the gap between cryptographiy, security, PETs and the context-specific needs in real-world AI (e.g., machine learning), Fintech (e.g., digital currencies like CBDC), 5G and IoT applications. I am interested in investigating the requirements from the underlying scenarios, formulating them into rigorous properties in the theoretical primitives, and searching for efficient solutions. In my research, I often take a data-driven research methodology, and aim at understanding the implications of data handling in target applications.

What's New?

I am searching for industrial partners to initiate public-private research partnerships.


I received my Ph.D. from the Royal Holloway, University of London in 2007. Before coming to UK, I spent 1 year as a security engineer at a startup company. Before this, I obtained a Master degree in Cryptography from Peking University in 2002 and a Bachelor degree in Applied Mathematics from Yantai University in 1999, both in China. Before joining LIST in December 2016, I was a PostDoc researcher and Principal Investigator in SnT at University of Luxembourg. Prior to that I spent 4.5 years as a PostDoc researcher at University of Twente, the Netherlands. Even prior to this, I spent 1 year as a PostDoc researcher at Ecole Normale Superieure, France.
