My research interests are in information privacy and in computer and networks security. In particular, I study security and privacy aspects of emerging mobile and distributed computing systems, such as location-based services, mobile social networking, and electronic voting. Some sample topics that I have worked on are:

I am a member of the Cryptography, Security, and Privacy (CrySP) research group, the Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research and the Systems and Networking Group.

I am involved with the Digital Media Enabling Technologies project.

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon in August 2005. Prior to that, I received an M.S. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon and a Dipl. Informatik-Ing. ETH from ETH Zürich (Curriculum Vitae).

My research is supported by NSERC and Google.
