Attention! I will be joining the School of Computer Science at the University of Sydney, Australia as a lecturer in July 2024!

I am a post-doctoral fellow at NTT Research working with Hoeteck Wee and before that, I was at Carnegie Mellon University working with Elaine Shi.

Research Interests

I am working on the theory and practice of:

- Blockchains

- Security and privacy of cryptocurrencies

- Fairness in multi-party applications. 

I am also interested in developing post-quantum cryptographic primitives based on Lattices that have real-world applications.

More Background

I did my Ph.D. in Applied Cryptography under Dominique Schröder at the Chair of Applied Cryptography, Friedrich Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany (2016-2021) and passed with a Summa Cum Laude.

My dissertation was nominated for GI Dissertationspreis 2021.

Before this, I did my Master (M.Sc, 2015-2016) in Computer Science at Universität des Saarlandes, Germany, and my bachelor's (B.Tech, 2011 - 2015) in Computer Science & Engineering, from National Institute of Technology, Trichy, India. I attended School at DAV Boys Senior Secondary School, Gopalapuram, Chennai, (2008-2011) and DAV BHEL School, Ranipet, (1997-2008).
