About me

I am an assistant professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Connecticut. I'm a member of the Comcast Center of Excellence for Security Innovation and the Connecticut Cybersecurity Center.

Prior to joining UConn I was a cryptographic researcher building secure systems at MIT Lincoln Laboratory from 2007-2016 in the Secure, Resilient Systems and Technology Group. I completed my Ph.D. at Boston University. While at BU I contributed to the BUSEC group.  You can follow me on twitter at @fuzzycrypto

My primary research area is cryptography spanning from complexity/reduction-based cryptography, information theory, and applied cryptography necessary to deploy systems. Ideally, I'm able to take a real problem, develop a theoretically sound approach, and work with others to implement a proof of concept.

The CSE and ECE departments are jointly organizing a security seminar throughout the 2017-2018 academic year.  We're always looking for exciting speakers.

I also work with UConn's cyber security club. I encourage interested students to attend a meeting or talk to me about possible problems in cyber security.

I keep my CV up to date and I try and include all updates on this site as well.  My google scholar page is also a good reference for my research.
