Ludwig’s research interests lie in the field of discrete mathematics, with an emphasis on combinatorial designs and error-correcting codes. His work has a strong focus on the application of results in these fields to practical problems of information security, e.g. to security testing and cryptography. Problems of information security can often be phrased as problems of discrete mathematics or theoretical computer science and then be tackled with combinatorial methods.
Ludwig received his master’s degree in Technical Mathematics with focus on discrete mathematics from the TU Wien. Currently he is a PhD student of Technical Informatics.
