I am a postdoctoral scholar interested in cryptography and computer security. Primarily, I aim to use cryptography to find practical solutions to real-world security problems (though I can occasionally be found attempting to resolve questions of more theoretical interest). I work with Stefano Tessaro.
Before coming to the Allen School, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science at the University of California, San Diego under the guidance of Mihir Bellare. I earned a bachelor's in Computer Science and Mathematics at Rutgers University where David Cash introduced me to the fascinating worlds of cryptography and academic research.
