Research Interests

I'm interested in lattice-based anonymous digital signatures for implementation in a TPM chip whose aim is to bring quantum-resistant cryptography to all devices containing them. 

More broadly I am interested in lattice-based cryptography and the development of privacy enhancing technologies for use in the post-quantum era.
