Curriculum Vitae

I'm a Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering, working with Prof. Charalampos (Babis) Papamanthou and Prof. Jonathan Katz on exciting area of computer security, privacy and cryptography. Recently, I'm working on verifiable computations, searchable encryptions and privacy-preserving machine learning.

My research is generously supported by the Google PhD Fellowship.
