I work on applied cryptography, with a focus on authenticated data structures for public-key infrastructures and cryptocurrencies. My interests lie at the intersection of theory and practice: I enjoy designing new cryptographic primitives and implementing them.
My current work (mostly) seeks to build novel authenticated data structures that improve upon Merkle trees for speeding up validation in the next generation of cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum 2.0:
Before joining VRG, I have worked on vector commitments, on scalable threshold cryptosytems, on faster proofs for polynomial commitments, on append-only authenticated data structures for public-key distribution, on scaling BFT algorithms, on leveraging the Bitcoin blockchain to prevent equivocation attacks in public-key directories, and on privacy-preserving file systems via ORAMs.
