I'm a final year PhD student (graduating May 2023) in computer science at Cornell University (although technically at the Cornell Tech campus), advised by Rafael Pass. I recently interned at NTT Research for Fall 2021 – Spring 2022, supervised by Ilan Komargodski. I am fortunate to be supported by an NSF graduate research fellowship. My research interests include theoretical cryptography and privacy and their applications to blockchain technologies and learning theory. Generally, I'm interested in the theory underlying various efficiency and security properties of cryptographic proof systems. I did my undergrad at The University of Texas at Austin, graduating in 2017 with degrees in computer science and math. Prior to that, I attended the Texas Academy of Math and Science at The University of North Texas.
