I have an interest in developing algorithms or software that can have a positive impact on people and also challenges my creativity and problem solving capabilities. With this in mind, cryptography is the focus of my research as computer security will always be of major importance. I also love teaching, helping students to develop skills that will aid them in their future endeavors.
