Cryptography courses are coming to UChicago CS. In Autumn '18 I will teach CMSC 28400, "Introduction to Cryptography" (undergraduate), and in Winter '19 I will teach CMSC 38400 "Cryptography" (graduate).
I do research in cryptography, computer security, and theoretical computer science. Recently I have worked on building and analyzing systems for securely navigating encrypted data, constructing quantum-secure cryptography, and proving foundational results in theoretical cryptography.
In 2017 I found flaws in multi-user full-text search systems like Elastic. Amongst other consequences, my work showed how to access private repository data on GitHub. More information is available via our FAQ.
