I am the Director of Research for the Modular Approach to Cloud Security project.

PhD in Mathematics

I went to graduate school at MIT, where I studied program obfuscation with Ran Canetti.

Research Interests

Below, you'll find a list of some of my favorite topics to study. I have also provided links to selected papers, presentations, or code.

You can find a full list of my papers at DBLP. For some of my conference papers, full versions are available through the IACR.


My PhD thesis provides concrete methods to “obfuscate” or garble computer programs in a provably secure manner while preserving their functionality.


I like to explore the relationships between trust and security in the digital world.
