Curriculum vitae
QuICS Profile


I am an affiliate faculty of the Mathematics Department and an adjunct in the Computer Science Department and UMIACS.


I work on quantum information processing, a field where a number of different disciplines and styles of thinking converge. My particular focus is on quantum cryptography, where proving the security of new protocols often involves some creative and interesting mathematics. I am interested more generally in applications of higher mathematics to theoretical computer science.
