I work in the areas of cryptography and security. I am interested in both theoretical work that develops new cryptographic tools
and applied cryptography projects that aim to use and implement cryptographic protocols in systems in order to enhance their security
properties. My research includes work
in the areas of secure computation, oblivious data structures, zero knowledge and verifiable computation, obfuscation.
I received my PhD from the Computer Science Department of Columbia University and I was co-advised by Tal Malkin and Steve Bellovin. After my PhD I spent a year as a postdoc at the Cryptography Group at IBM Research Watson. I was a Research Scientist at the Computer Science Laboratory at SRI International between 2013 and 2015. Following that I was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at Yale University between 2016 and 2018. I joined Google as a Research Scientist in 2019.
