I am a Staff 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 from the Computer Science department.

I work in the Advanced Cryptography team with Pratyay Mukherjee, Atul Lukyx, Yilei Chen, Peter Rindal, Daniel Masny, and Gaven Watson. I have been fortunate to work with several great interns over the past few years: Chaya Ganesh (NYU -> Aarhus), Benedikt Bünz (Stanford), Ioannis Demertzis (UMD), Peihan Miao (UCB), and Saikrishna Badrinarayanan (UCLA).

I was on the program committee of SBC 2019, FC 2019, FC 2018, and SAC 2017.
