Welcome to my personal home page! I'm a Qualcomm Research Fellow at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing of U.C. Berkeley. Before joining Berkeley, I held post-doctoral researcher positions at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (hosted by Piotr Indyk), Computer Science Department of the Carnegie Mellon University (hosted by Venkat Guruswami) and the University of Texas at Austin (hosted by David Zuckerman).

Beginning July 2015, I will join the Department of Computing at the Imperial College London as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor). I'm looking for motivated PhD students with strong math background. If you are prospective student interested in theoretical computer science, information and coding theory, privacy or related subjects (see my interests below), contact me and describe your background and goals.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from EPFL, Switzerland, where I worked as a research assistant in the Laboratory of Algorithms (ALGO) under supervision of Amin Shokrollahi.

I'm mainly interested in Theoretical Computer Science, or more specifically: Some random links:
