About me

I am currently a PhD student in the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London, under the supervision of Martin R. Albrecht. My work focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of post-quantum cryptography and cryptanalysis. In general, I’m interested in mathematical aspects of cryptography.

Before joining Royal Holloway, I obtained a BSc in Mathematics and an MSc in Applied Mathematics, both from Imperial College London. For a while I also worked as a NodeJS developer. My academic CV can be downloaded here.

During the summer of 2018, I interned at Microsoft Research in the Security and Cryptography group, under the supervision of Craig Costello. During the summer of 2019, I interned again at Microsoft Research in the same group, under the joint supervision of Michael Naehrig and Martin Roetteler.
