I am a PhD Candidate working on Classical and Quantum Cryptography at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. I am very grateful to have Nelly Fazio as my advisor. Before joining CUNY, I received my Master in Computer Science from Paris 7 Diderot under the supervision of Iordanis Kerenidis. Before that, I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens and was a member of CoReLab.
I am supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), under Grant 40D03-00-01.
I am planning to graduate on Summer 2020 and actively looking for full-time roles on software engineering/research.
- 4/1/2020: ERC Portofolio. I just finished up an early version of an equally distributed risk portfolio in C++. Feel free to pull and experiment!
- 2/11/2020: Our paper “One-shot Signatures and Applications to Hybrid Quantum/Classical Authentication” got accepted at STOC 2020.
Can we build a decentralized cryptocurrency without a blockchain and need for active consensus, where new coins are mined using proof of work and transactions happen almost instantly using only classical communication? Most likely yes! This 2-minute article summarizes how.
