I am an assistant professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Connecticut. I'm a member of the Connecticut Advanced Computing 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 jointly organize a security seminar. Please contact me to join the mailing list. 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.
I am in the office most days but ask for scheduling due to COVID. My open hours are 9-10am on Fridays (schedule through nexus.uconn.edu).
