Honors and Awards:  Best Paper Award - USENIX Security, Best Student Paper Award - USENIX Security, NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow, NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

Research Expertise: Software Systems Security and Information Assurance

Nadia's research takes a mathematical approach to computer security and cryptography. She is particularly interested in problems where mathematical or algorithmic tools can provide insight on the security or real-world systems; most recently, this has meant discovering and studying widespread random number generation vulnerabilities. Current areas of interest include network security, privacy, cryptanalysis, computational number theory, lattices, coding theory, and implications for public policy.

Education:
PhD in Computer Science 2011 - Princeton University
BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 2004 - University of California Berkeley
