Research Scientist

I am a research scientist at Facebook in the Statistics & Privacy team. Before joining Facebook, I was a senior research scientist at Dfinity, working on Dfinitie’s consensus protocol, its white-paper security proofs, and privacy-preserving blockchain. I was a postdoctoral associate in computer science at Yale and earned a PhD and an MS degree in computer science from the University of New Mexico, USA. My research focus is on secure computation, privacy-preserving protocols, decentralization, and scalable secure distributed algorithms.
