Man Ho Au ???

Academic Background
Man Ho Au is a  lecturer in the University of Wollongong. He obtained his PhD degree in the same university in the year 2009. His academic advisors are Dr. Willy Susilo, Dr. Yi Mu. He was born in Hong Kong and got both his bachelor (2003) and master degree (2005) in the Department of Information Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

My parents also gave me the English name Allen when I was young so feel free to call me Allen.

Update: I will join the Department of Computing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University as an assistant professor in July. Please visit my new site (link) in the future.

Research Interests

Information Security, public key cryptography, especially systems where user privacy is of great concern (e.g. Anonymous Credential Systems, Electronic Cash Systems).

Additional information about my publications can be found on Google Scholar and DBLP.
