Curriculum Vitae

I am 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 am working on verifiable computation, searchable encryption and privacy-preserving machine learning.

My research is generously supported by the Google PhD Fellowship.
