Gilles Van Assche currently works in the Secure Microcontrollers Division of STMicroelectronics in Diegem, Belgium and teaches cryptography at the École Supérieure d'Informatique in Brussels. He is an active researcher in the field of cryptography and a co-designer of the Keccak algorithm, which was selected by NIST for the SHA-3 standard in 2012, after an intense five-year open competition.

At ST, he works on security and testing aspects of software on secure microcontrollers. Next to that, he enjoys devising efficient and innovative cryptographic functions with his teammates Guido Bertoni, Joan Daemen, Michaël Peeters and Ronny Van Keer, for hashing, pseudo-random number generation, authentication and (authenticated) encryption. He is a maintainer of the open-source Keccak code package.
