Alex Lombardi

I am a fourth year graduate student in computer science at MIT, where I am fortunate to be advised by Vinod Vaikuntanathan. I am currently supported in part by an NDSEG fellowship.

My current interests lie mainly in the theory and foundations of cryptography, although I am broadly interested in theoretical computer science.

You can find a (mostly) complete list of publications on DBLP or on the Cryptology ePrint Archive.


During the Fall 2019 semester, I will be teaching 6.876 Advanced Topics in Cryptography.

I was a TA for 6.875 Cryptography and Cryptanalysis during the Spring 2018 semester.
