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 2018-2019 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.
Current office hours for Spring 2019 are by appointment.
