About me

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

Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow with Vipul Goyal at CMU from November 2020 to June 2022. I received my Ph.D. in 2020 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.
