I am a first year student at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, supervised by Rosario Gennaro. I can be found at the CAISS Institute. I wrote my Masters thesis on Homomorphic Signature Schemes with Yevgeniy Dodis  and the incalculably important guidance  of Dario Fiore. I am primarily interested in Cryptography and more broadly in Theoretical Computer Sciences. In particular my work so far has focused on designing provably secure protocols. Click for  a full resume
