Fan Zhang

I am a third year PhD student in the department of Computer Science at Cornell University. Under the able advice of Prof. Ari Juels, my research interest spans systems security, applied cryptography, cryptocurrencies, trusted hardware and their intersections. I am a member of the exciting Initiative for Cryptocurrencies & Contracts (IC3). Before joining Cornell, I got my bachelor's degree in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2014.
