About me

I have recently joined as a researcher at Microsoft Research New England, coming from being an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Georgia Tech. Before this, I was a postdoc at the Weizmann Institute in Israel and Microsoft Research in Redmond. I recently graduated from MIT, working in cryptography under the superb supervision of Shafi Goldwasser. I was also extremely fortunate to have the guidance of Adi Shamir for my master's degree.
