I am always interested in working with new students. So if you would like to work with me, please follow this protocol.

If you are not yet a student at NYU, but are interested in joining our PhD program under my supervision, Literally, there is very little point in contacting me personally, since your application will anyway be decided by the admissions committee. The only exceptions to the above rule, when I encourage you to contact me and introduce yourself, are:
  1. If you are a student of somebody I know well personally and who encouraged you to contact me.
  2. If you already worked on some of the problems I actively work in, and produced some results (i.e., improved one of my previous papers).
  3. If you have a paper published at the following conferences: STOC, FOCS, CRYPTO, EUROCRYPT, ASIACRYPT, TCC, PKC, CCS, FSE, SAC, SODA, ICALP, CCC, SCN, RSA, RANDOM, APPROX.

If you are a perspective (already admitted) or a beginning PhD (sometimes, even masters) student,
  1. Start attending our Cryptography Seminar. This is the best way to get invoilved!
  2. Consult a short Powerpoint presentation about
    Cryptography Group @ NYU and My Personal Interests (Date: March 1, 2003)
  3. Also consult Cryptography Group at NYU for more information about our group.
  4. Take one of our Cryptography classes.
  5. Of course, come to my office and talk to me!

If you are an undergraduate student interested in doing a project in Cryptography,
If you aren't an NYU student, aren't applying to our PhD program, but want to make some money doing a summer internship with me, then
