I am a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University.

My research interests lie in applied cryptography and computer security, and their policy implications for privacy in today’s networked world. I am interested in understanding how cryptographic techniques can yield transparency- and accountability-enhancing privacy-preserving solutions to policy problems of trust.

Previously, I investigated manipulation in cryptocurrency markets at the MIT Sloan School of Management, developed secret sharing mechanisms for a distributed encrypted filesystem at Keybase in San Francisco and designed reranking models for search results at Bloomberg LP in New York. Prior to that, as a Jane Stanford Fellow for Public Service, I worked with Dr. Shashi Tharoor (Member of Parliament) in his constituency of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

I grew up in New Delhi and graduated from Stanford University with B.S. degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science, and an M.A. in Public Policy.
