Brief Biography

I have recently concluded a Ph.D. in Cryptography under the supervision of Prof. Kenneth G. Paterson in the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL). My most recent work has addressed the construction of provable secure non-interactive key exchange schemes - cryptographic techniques that enable two parties to establish a shared key without any interaction.

Prior to coming to RHUL in 2009, I concluded Masters and Undergraduate degrees in Electronic Engineering.
