Dr Sigurd Eskeland

Sigurd-Eskeland

Biography

Sigurd Eskeland is a Norwegian information scientist with expertise in cryptography and security. After a first degree in industrial electronics, he obtained a Masters in ICT (both from University of Agder, Norway). He has a PhD (from Aalborg University, Denmark) in cryptographic protocols. He is currently a senior researcher in information security with the Norwegian Computing Centre.

Dr Eskeland gives talks about information, complexity, and language, and how this relates to creation and Darwinism.
