Hi, I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the Decentralized/Distributed Systems lab at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL) advised by Prof. Bryan Ford. My research interests revolve around the topics in System and Network Security, Cryptographic Protocols and Distributed Systems. I am currently focused on improving security of software-update systems, reducing metadata leakage from encrypted data formats, and building a secure peer-to-peer collaboration platform.

A software-update framework that provides decentralized enforcement of development and release processes, independent verification of source-to-binary correspondence, transparency via a collectively-signed update timeline, and efficient release validation by arbitrarily out-of-date clients.
Joint DeDiS project that offers a framework for simulating and deploying decentralized and distributed cryptographic protocols.
I have supervised two master’s theses, two master’s and two bachelor’s semester projects, and served as a teaching assistant for the following courses at EPFL:
