I am an associate professor at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Sharif University of Technology.

I was a postdoctoral researcher at School of Computer Science and Communication, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, from 2011 to 2012 during which I worked with Douglas Wikström on electronic voting schemes and mix-nets. I did my Ph.D. at LACAL, EPFL, Switzerland under the supervision of Arjen Lenstra and Willi Meier and worked on cryptanalysis of symmetric primitives, mainly stream ciphers and hash functions.

Main Research Interests

  • symmetric cryptography
  • cryptographic protocols
  • electronic voting and mix-nets
  • privacy and anonymity
