I am a Research Scientist at Visa Research. I work on cryptography, information security, and distributed computing. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a PhD in Computer Science.

We have a fantastic security research team at Visa Research, with Payman Mohassel, Pratyay Mukherjee, Atul Lukyx, Yilei Chen, and myself interested in cryptography.

I was on the program committee of Financial Cryptography and Data Security (FC 2017) and Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC 2017).
