I am a second-year PhD student in the Computer Science department at Cornell University. I'm physically located at Cornell's NYC Tech campus.
My research is in theoretical and applied cryptography. Currently I am focusing on cryptography for cloud security applications. I'm also interested in lattice cryptography, primitives, cryptography engineering, and constructing protocols that do cool stuff.
My non-technical interests include censorship, privacy, legal and ethical issues related to information security, and the intersection of technology and society.
I did my undergrad at Indiana University, where I majored in Math and Computer Science. After graduating, I worked for two and a half years at Skyhigh Networks as a cryptography engineer. I left in August of 2015 to start grad school at Cornell.
