I have moved from the University of Virginia to Northeastern University where I am an associate professor of computer science. My research area is computer security and cryptography and I my aim is to develop systems that incorporate novel cryptographic techniques in order to achieve interesting security properties. My work currently focuses on secure computation protocols, zero-knowledge protocols and verifiable computation, cryptocurrencies and blockchains, and a study of the complexity of encryption schemes that are suitable for the internet. My email is abhi at neu.edu.

Projects

Our group's project page at neucrypt.org hosts source code for all of our recent projects.

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

Students

My group is accepting PhD students for 2019, please contact me if you are interested. I also welcome undergraduates to find research projects in my group (there are currently 5 undergraduates who contribute on weekly basis to our projects).

Current members in my group are:

My former PhD students include Mona Sergi (2013, now at Google), Chih-hao Shen (2014, now at Google), Ben Kreuter (2018, now at Google), Ben Terner (Masters 2015, going to UCSD to complete PhD).

Research

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