Roles and responsibilities

I am a Research officer in the Cryptography and Quantum Computing team of the Digital Technologies research center.

Current research and/or projects

My research expertise is in quantum cryptography. I am interested in exploiting quantum information for advanced cryptographic tasks form lesser assumptions. I also do research on the security of classical cryptography against quantum adversaries, also known as post-quantum cryptography. I am also interested in cryptographic solutions to privacy.
