I am an assistant professor in the Computer Sciences Department at UW-Madison.

I am teaching a graduate course on Cryptography (CS880). Email me for the syllabus!

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT, hosted by Vinod Vaikuntanathan. Before that, I was an Apple research fellow at Simons Institute participating in the Lattices program. I received my PhD at UT, where I was advised by Brent Waters. And, I got my bachelor's in Computer Science from IIT Delhi.

My main area of research is Cryptography and Computer Security. In particular, I am interested in post-quantum and lattice-based cryptography with a focus on building secure systems with advanced capabilities. I am also interested in studying the impact of advanced cryptography on influencing public policy and law.

Please send me an email if you are interested in learning more about my research.
