Pink-Haired Cryptographer

DSO National Laboratories


Hi! I am currently a Research Engineer at DSO National Laboratories in Singapore. I obtained my PhD at UCSD, and was advised by Mihir Bellare and David Cash. Before that, I was an undergrad at UChicago, during which time I worked with Ariel Feldman and Khoongming Khoo.

It is a theory of mine (publication pending) that most people who come to this page are trying to figure out how to spell/ pronounced my last name. If so, please resist the urge to add vowel sounds in random locations and pronouce it like in fuNGus. And yes, I had to consult a linguist for that advice.
