Before joining UCL, I completed a BSc in Theoretical Physics at QMUL and a MASt in Mathematics in Cambridge. I also spent a summer working on formalised mathematics and interactive theorem proving at the Computer Laboratory in Cambridge under Lawrence Paulson.
My research interests broadly revolve around cryptography and machine learning in the context of privacy and security.
