I am a system security researcher, who investigates and develops new techniques targeting the solution of foundational security problems. In recent years, I have focused on making cloud computing (which includes outsourcing data and workloads to external servers / data center) safe for its users. Towards this aim, I use my strong background in theory (cryptography, algorithms, statistics) with my understanding of computer system architecture to design and build deployable systems that are trustworthy from the user’s perspective.

My general interests are in computer architecture, computer system design, data center infrastructure, cryptology, algorithms and other related fields such as information theory, game theory and machine learning.
