About me

I am a Lecturer (Australian equivalent to Assistant Professor) in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University. My research focuses on cryptography and its abundant intersections with machine learning, privacy and information theory. I have a keen interest in the design of cryptographic protocols to enhance privacy and most of my current investigations are into privacy-preserving machine learning and blockchain technologies.

Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Research in Applied Cryptography and Cyber Security at Bar-Ilan University, Israel, and in the Cryptography and Security Research Group at Aarhus University, Denmark. I got my doctoral degree from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, where I worked in the Cryptography and Security Group. My thesis is available here.
