I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at NYU Courant.

My research is in theoretical computer science, particularly the foundations of cryptography and computational complexity.

I completed my PhD at Columbia University, where I was fortunate enough to be advised by Tal Malkin. In the midst of my doctoral studies, I spent two and half years visiting the FACT Center at IDC Herzliya, Israel. After graduating, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Washington, supported by a NSF/CRA Computing Innovation Fellowship, under the guidance of Huijia Lin and Stefano Tessaro.

I'm currently looking for creative and motivated students.
