About me

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I currently hold the Glen and Susanne Culler chair.

I work on a variety of theoretical and applied topics in cryptography. My work also explores connections between cryptography and other disciplines, including information theory, computational complexity, and computer security at large.

I am actively looking for bright and motivated graduate students interested in working under my supervision. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me! (Also check out here.)

Before joining UCSB, I was a research scientist at MIT CSAIL, supervised by Shafi Goldwasser. Previously, from October 2010 to January 2012, I was a postdoctoral scholar at UC San Diego working with Mihir Bellare. I completed my PhD in 2010 at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Ueli Maurer. More information is available in my CV (Updated November 2013).
