About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania working with Nadia Heninger. Currently, I am focusing on the mathematical aspects of applied cryptography. My work lies at the intersection of Mathematics and Cryptography, with particular research interests in lattice-based cryptography, computational number theory and the Number Field Sieve algorithm. I am interested in both attacks and defenses with a particular interest in using mathematical techniques for obtaining a better understanding of the security properties of commonly used cryptographic primitives in real-world applications.
