I am a third year PhD student at Johns Hopkins University under the wonderful supervision of both Matthew Green and Abhishek Jain. I am in general interested in cryptography and its applications, more specifically, most of my research interests are at the intersection of cryptography with privacy, and verifiable computation. I am particularly interested in designing protocols with minimal trust requirements. Over the last two summers, I have collaborated with the Ethereum Research team to build, attack and study practical verifiable delay functions (VDFs) and with the PSE team as a grantee where I fell down the zero-knowledge proofs rabbithole, working on verifiable machine learning.
