I believe computers can be pleasant and safe to use, if only we would make them so.

My Master's thesis is a proposed protocol for verifiable postal voting, mixing the benefits of paper voting with cryptographic assurance and honest-but-curious receipt freeness. Other interests include distributed systems, programming language theory, abstract algebra, and category theory.

I have a grade of 6th kyu in goju ryu karate, play ice hockey, am learning piano, and occasionally make videogames. I enjoy gardening, cooking, and games of all kinds.
