Personal Details

I am a Post-Doc in Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine, USA.

Research interests:
Incorporating cryptographic techniques and/or secure hardware for supporting data-driven applications (with possibilities of using systems such as Hadoop and Spark).
Developing a secure IoT space (e.g., a smart building) that captures user-related data and requires the development of secure consent management, secure data storage according to the data retention policies, and secure data processing.

Post-Doc advisor: Prof. Sharad Mehrotra

I completed my Ph.D. in Department of Computer Science at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beersheva, Israel.
I am blessed to become an academic son of Prof. Shlomi Dolev and getting guidance from Prof. Jeffrey Ullman during my Ph.D. work as well as in present.
