I am an associate professor of computer science at the University of Virginia. I work in computer security and cryptography with the aim of developing novel systems that incorporate the state-of-the-art security techniques. Some of my work focuses on building secure computation protocols, some of my work focuses on building systems that ensure both anonymity and accountability. Some of my work also studies the complexity of encryption schemes that are suitable for the internet. My email is abhi @ virginia.edu.

Research

My research is supported by the National Science Foundation, DARPA, the Microsoft Faculty Fellowship Award (2010), the FEST fellowship award (2010), an Amazon Research award, an SAIC research award, a Jacobs Future of Money Workshop research prize (2014), and the Google Faculty Research Award (2015).

See anonize.org for our implementation of the ANONIZE scheme. The implementation was used to run course reviews at CornellTech during the Spring semester. Here is a Wired story about the scheme. Contact me if you are interested in using it.

Students

My PhD students include Mona Sergi (2013, now at Google), Chih-hao Shen (2014, now at Google), Ben Kreuter (now at Google), Ben Terner (Masters 2015, going to UCSD to complete PhD).
