I am interested in the field of Cryptography, with a focus on secure protocols and their efficiency. This research concentrates on the problem of constructing secure protocols that are both highly efficient and have rigorous proofs of security. In my research I consider different adversarial models and definitions of security, with the aim of obtaining high efficiency and security. I am also interested in developing new models that capture real-world scenarios. My goal is to design efficient protocols for practical usage.
I am looking for strongly motivated students who are interested in this area. Students that would like to work with me must take my course Introduction to Cryptography (83-458), or an equivalent.
