My research at the Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2) focuses on computer security and applied cryptography, with a specific emphasis on technologies, systems and theory providing secure computations in the cloud. My work is partially supported by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Security Agency, Google, Yahoo!, NetApp and Amazon.

I am always looking for bright and self-motivated students that wish to do research on computer security and applied cryptography. Feel free to contact me if you are interested.
