My research interests are in cryptography and security, with my main research focusing on the development of privacy-enhancing mechanisms. I am also interested in foundational questions in cryptography such as general feasibility results and relationships between cryptographic primitives. In the future, while remaining open to new opportunities, I expect to continue working on privacy-enhancing mechanisms; in particular, I find privacy issues related to cloud computing quite interesting.


Privacy-Enhancing Mechanisms
On the Internet, a huge number of privacy-sensitive transactions are being performed, e.g., financial transactions, medical transactions, and email transactions. Needless to say, the disclosure of these private pieces of information may inflict critical damage on the owners, and therefore it is imperative to develop mechanisms that guarantee privacy in various contexts. I have worked on privacy-enhancing mechanisms in various contexts, described next.
