Description

I work broadly in the area of systems security. At the beginning of my career, my primary research interest has been in applying cryptographic techniques to design secure protocols for distributed systems. Recently, I have also been investigating the use of Trusted Computing technologies for securing endnodes, ways to make secure systems usable (especially in the context of mobile devices) and application of machine learning techniques to security/privacy problems as well as security/privacy implications of machine learning.
