Co-founder of Blyss

Prev: SWE at Yubico, research in the Stanford Applied Cryptography group

I recently co-founded Blyss with Neil Movva. We are building an SDK that makes it easy to use homomorphic encryption.

I was previously a software engineer at Yubico, where I worked on secure device manufacturing and programming.

I also do research on homomorphic encryption and private information retrieval.



I got my B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science in 2019 from Stanford University; my tracks were Systems and Computer & Network Security. While there, I was a TA for Prof. Dan Boneh's CS 255 (cryptography) and CS 251 (blockchain) classes. I also did research in the Applied Cryptography group on speeding up lattice-based SNARKs.
