I’m a postdoc researcher in the Cryptography and Security Group at Aarhus University, since April 2024. Before that, I was a cryptography researcher at Concordium from June 2022 to March 2024. Prior to that, I was a PhD student at Aarhus University from June 2019 to May 2022, under the supervision of Jesper Buus Nielsen. I obtained my master’s degree in Computer Science from Sharif University of Technology under the guidance of Shahram Khazaei.

My research is mainly focused on privacy-preserving technologies for blockchains, particularly proof systems with desirable properties, such as succinctness and zero knowledge.
