I am currently an MC2 Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Maryland, working with Jonathan Katz. Previously, I held a joint appointment with the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy, working with Giulio Malavolta. I received my PhD from the University of Edinburgh, where I was advised by Aggelos Kiayias.

My broad research interests are in theoretical computer science. More specifically, I work in cryptography focusing on the construction of primitives with enhanced properties and secure computation protocols. Recently, I have also become interested in the impact that quantum computation has on cryptography.
