I am a researcher in the Cryptography and Privacy group at Microsoft Research Redmond. My research focuses on defining and constructing cryptographic protocols and primitives. I am involved in projects on Privacy in ML , Digital Identities , and Secure Computing projects.

I completed a phd in Computer Science at Brown University, working under Anna Lysyanskaya. During the summer of 2007, I went to IBM Zurich to work with Jan Camenisch in the idemix group, and I spent the fall semester of 2006 at the cryptography program at UCLA’s IPAM. I did my undergrad at Harvey Mudd College in Computer Science and Math.
