I am a PhD student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I am working with Professor Srinivas Devadas in the Computation Structures Group (CSG), focusing on systems and security research. I received an M.S. in EECS from MIT in 2015 and a B.S. in Computer Science from Stony Brook University in 2012, where I worked under the guidance of Professor Radu Sion. My current research interests are secure public-key directories, cryptographic puzzles, cryptocurrencies, anonymity and secure web applications.
