About Me: I am a cryptographer, specialising in the area of zero-knowledge proofs. I am currently a Research Associate and University College London with Dr Meiklejohn. My thesis was supervised by Dr Meiklejohn and Prof Groth and was submitted in December 2018. Microsoft Research Cambridge supported my PhD. I was co-supervised by Dr Markulf Kohlweiss, whom I also completed an internship with in 2017.

Before joining UCL I studied for an MSci degree in Mathematics at the University of Bristol. My dissertation was on representations and special functions and was supervised by Dr Yves Tourigny.
