I am a Cryptographer at NuCypher, a startup that builds an infrastructure for privacy-preserving applications.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from Columbia University in 2019. I was a member of the Cryptography Lab and the Data Science Institute at Columbia. During the PhD I was fortunate to be advised by Allison Bishop (Proof Trading and Cryptography lab at Columbia) and Tal Malkin (Cryptography lab at Columbia). I also worked closely with Justin Cappos (Secure Systems Lab at NYU).

My research interests cover cryptography, security, privacy, and distributed systems. More information about my research work can be found here.

Before joining NuCypher, I was a Research Scientist at CacheCash, a startup that builds a fully distributed content delivery network (CDN) service powered by a cryptocurrency. CacheCash was the core work of my PhD thesis.
