About Me:
I am an Assistant Professor in the CSE Department at UC Riverside. My research interests are in Cryptography, Computer Security and Complexity Theory. I got my Ph. D. in 2014 from UCLA under the supervision of Rafail Ostrovsky. From 2015 to 2017 I was a postdoctoral researcher with a joint appointment at the MIT CSAIL and BU Computer Science departments, working with Vinod Vaikuntanathan and Ran Canetti.
