About me

I am an Associate Research Professor at the NJIT Department of Computer Science & Cybersecurity Research Center. My primary research interests are applied lattice-based cryptography, fully homomorphic encryption, and program obfuscation. I am a core contributor to the PALISADE Lattice Cryptography Library. The work of our team is being funded by National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), and Sloan Foundation.

Prior to joining NJIT, I worked as a research scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, a principal consultant at Presidio, and held several industrial computer science/information technology positions. My other research interests are time series analysis using statistical physics methods and mathematical modeling of membrane technology processes. I authored more than 40 journal publications and currently teach CS 608 Cryptography & Security at NJIT.
