I am a first year PhD student at Boston University’s Department of Computer Science supported by a Dean’s Fellowship. I am interested in cryptography and intersecting topics from quantum computing, complexity theory, and number theory. Currently, I am studying zero-knowledge proofs and secure multi-party computation protocols.
I organize the quantum cryptography reading group at BU. Please send me if you are interested in presenting.
Previously, I interned 3 times at Twitter as a software engineering intern. In fall 2018, I was a visiting project student at the Decentralized and Distributed Systems (DEDIS) Lab led by Prof. Bryan Ford at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) to do my graduation project. Prior to that, I visited UCLA’s Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) as part of a summer program in 2017. I interned with Microsoft Research in Cairo in summer 2015 and worked with Affectiva (an MIT spin-off startup) in 2017 to build their first multi-class speech emotion recognition classifier.
For more details, please refer to my CV.
I would love to chat about potential projects/internships. If you feel you have a matching idea, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
