Education

PhD in Computer Science (Cryptographic Protocols)

University of Surrey, January 2013 -- February 2016

Working on password-based authentication in the PRIMAKE project. The Private Multi-Party Authentication and Key Exchange (PRIMAKE) project aims at the design and analysis of efficient provably private cryptographic protocols that will form a basis for a range of privacy-preserving applications. PRIMAKE protocols will give users full control over their own data, protect their anonymity, and eliminate user profiling. PRIMAKE protocols will have formal proofs of security and privacy, obtained using modern cryptographic techniques.
