Hi! I am currently transferring to a position at Kuwait University. I was a graduate student at the Computer Science Department of the University of Virginia working under the supervision of Professor Mohammad Mahmoody.
I am interested in cryptography (theoretical and applied), network security, algorithms, and computational complexity.
