I am a Postdoctoral Fellow working with Vipul Goyal. I am broadly interested in Cryptography; my current work focuses on zero-knowledge proofs, non-malleability, blockchains and secure multi-party computation.

I received my Ph.D. from UC Santa Barbara where I was advised by Stefano Tessaro and Huijia (Rachel) Lin. I spent the summer of 2020 working with Rachel Lin at UW Seattle, and the summer of 2019 working with Elette Boyle and Alon Rosen at the FACT Research Center, IDC Herzliya.

Prior to this, I was a Research Assistant at SoC, NUS hosted by Prateek Saxena. I received my B.E. (Hons.) in Computer Science and M.Sc. (Hons.) in Mathematics from BITS Pilani - India.
