I am an assistant professor in Cornell's computer science department. My research to date has focused on the study of lattices and using the tools of theoretical computer science to answer fundamental questions about the security of widely deployed real-world cryptography, particularly post-quantum lattice-based cryptography. I am also interested more broadly in theoretical computer science, cryptography, and geometry.

I received my PhD from NYU, advised by Professors Oded Regev and Yevgeniy Dodis. Before coming to Cornell, I was a fellow at the Simons Institute in Berkeley, as part of the program Lattices: Algorithms, Complexity, and Cryptography, a postdoctoral researcher at MIT's computer science department, supervised by Vinod Vaikunthanathan, and a postdoc at Princeton’s computer science department and visiting researcher at the Institute for Advanced Study’s math department---both as part of the Simons Collaboration on Algorithms and Geometry.
