I am a PhD student studying theoretical cryptography under professor Rafael Pass. Other professors on my committee include Dexter Kozen and Justin Moore.


My main interests are in the field of theoretical cryptography. Recently I have focused on zero-knowledge protocols and their security properties under concurrent executions. More broadly, I am interested in both the instantiation of cryptographic primitives as well as the general complexity relationships between classes of cryptographic primitives. You can find a short version of my CV here.

I used to coach the Cornell team for the ACM ICPC programming competition. Here is the 2008–2009 team webpage.
