Background and activities

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology (IIK) in NTNU working on cryptographic primitives in blockchain. I am also affiliated with the NTNU Applied Cryptology Lab.

Prior to starting my P.hD., I completed my masters in Computer Science at Indian Statistical Institute, India (2014-2016). After finishing my masters, I was working as a Research Engineer at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (2017-2018).
