Patrick McCorry

I am a Research Associate under the supervision of Sarah Meiklejohn. Previously, I visited Andrew Miller at UIUC and completed my PhD with Feng Hao at Newcastle University.

At heart I am an Engineer and interests include cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, cryptography and decentralised systems.

Why Cryptography? It is not just about hiding information (encryption) - it is about minimising trust (i.e. trusting mathematics, not humans).
