Dr. Charlie Grover is a cryptography researcher at Crypto Quantique, where he is driving performance improvements in securely extracting entropy, or randomness, from Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) in CMOS semiconductors. His work is contributing to further development of the world's most secure root-of-trust technology for microcontrollers and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), where identities and cryptographic keys are developed inside these silicon devices on-demand, eliminating the need for key injection, key storage, or third-party involvement.

Charlie holds a PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Imperial College London, where he worked on lattice-based cryptography and other aspects of post-quantum cryptography. Before that, he was awarded a first-class Undergraduate and Master's degree in Mathematics at the University of Oxford. His research interests are cryptography in a post-quantum world and hardware security IP for semiconductors.
