Assistant Professor

Department of Mathematical Sciences


Boca Raton - SE43, Room 266


  • Ph.D. in Combinatorics and Optimization, University of Waterloo, 2010

Research Interests

My research interests are in the areas of design of new cryptographic primitives and algorithms, efficient implementation, and cryptanalysis.
More specifically, I work on:

  • Finite fields: Efficient arithmetic, compact representations, Groebner basis computations.
  • Curve based cryptography: Elliptic and hyperelliptic curves, efficient arithmetic, pairings, discrete logarithm problem.
  • Cryptographic protocols: Side channel analysis, private biometrics, secure multi-party computation.

Recent Publications

  • Revisiting the false acceptance rate attack on biometric visual cryptographic schemes (with A. Robinson),
    Accepted: Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Information Theoretic Security - ICITS 2016, Lecture Notes in Computer Science 10015 (2016), 1-14.

Scholarly Activities

 The Department of Mathematical Sciences at FAU offers a series of events including American Mathematics Competition (AMC), Math Days, and Math Circles. These events are designed to inspire local elementary, middle, and high school students to pursue careers in mathematics. I am currently serving in the organizing committee of the Gold Coast Math Teachers' Circle (GCMTC) at FAU. GCMTC is the only active Math Teachers' Circle in Florida.
