I am an assistant professor at the Computer and Systems Engineering Department at the Faculty of Engineering at Alexandria University. My research interests are in the areas of applied cryptography and security, with a focus on verifiable computation, zero-knowledge proofs and blockchains.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral scholar at UC Berkeley, hosted by Prof. Dawn Song. In 2018, I received my PhD degree from the Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland, where I have been working as a research assistant at the Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2). My PhD advisors were Prof. Elaine Shi and Prof. Charalampos Papamanthou.
