Research

I am generally interested in applied cryptography and blockchains. I am currently focusing on two research topics:
1. Robust and efficient design of blockchain protocols.
2. Efficient privacy-preserving computation.

Teaching

Fall’21: Blockchain Consensus (CompSci 590-05)
Computer Security (CompSci 351, co-taught with Mike Reiter)

Past classes:
Spring’21: Applied Cryptography (CompSci 590-03)
Fall’20: Computer Security (CompSci 351)
Fall’19: Consensus Protocols in Distributed Computing and Blockchains (CompSci 590)

I'm looking for students

I am always looking for highly motivated Ph.D. students. If you are interested in working on any of these topics, then:
