Qiang Tang


I am a Senior Researcher at Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), which is a newly established research center in Luxembourg. The goal of my research is to bridge the gap between cryptographiy, security, privacy technologies AND the practical needs in real-world AI (particularly machine learning), Fintech (particularly 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, aiming at understanding the comprehensive implications of data handling in target applications.

For a more complete picture of my past and current work, take a look at my publications.

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.
