Hello, I'm Riccardo Aragona and currently I'm an assistant professor (RTDB) in Algebra at the Department of Engineering and Computer Science and Mathematics, University of L'Aquila. My research interests mainly focus on permutation group theory and symmetric cryptography, in particular permutation group-theoretical methods for block cipher security. In the past I have dealt with, and sometimes still do, representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras, Lie theory and semigroup theory.
