I have always enjoyed doing summer internships since they have given me the opportunity to work on new exciting questions in a different environment collaborating with many very smart and inspiring people with whom I have established valuable professional connections. Throughout my graduate and undergraduate studies I have participated in the following programs:

  • Internship in the Security Group, Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA, Jun-Sept 2011
  • I workded with Bryan Parno on protocols for verifiable computation on outsourced data. We studied relationships between verifiable computation and other cryptographic primitives.
  • Internship in the XCG Cryptography Group, Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA, Jun-Aug 2010
  • I worked with Seny Kamara on protocols for outsourced computation tailored for highly parallelized computation environments such as MapReduce.
  • Internship in the Cryptography Group, Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA, Jun-Aug 2009
  • I worked with Seny Kamara on efficient protocols for outsourced computation tailored in presence of non-colluding adversaries.
  • Internship in the Applied Research Group , Telcordia Technologies (former Bellcore), Piscataway, NJ, Jun-Aug 2008
  • I worked in policy team of ZODIAC project developing new model for communication over mobile ad-hoc networks with strict network security requirements. I was contributing to policy definitions, design and implementation of the policy system, performed security analysis.
  • Internship in the Security Group, Google Inc. Mountain View, CA, Jun-Aug 2007
  • I contributed to the extension and implementation of security protocols for server authentication aiming at good efficiency and parallel execution.
  • Undergraduate research in the program Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), director: Joseph Gallian, University of Minnesota, Duluth, MN, Jun-Aug 2005
  • I worked on research in discrete mathmatics, specifically on the problem of permutation reconstruction from its minors.
  • Internship in the Discrete Simulation Sciences Group (CCS-5), Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, Jun-Aug 2004
  • I participated in the development of mathematical models for simulation and the generation of large amount of simulation data with statistics corresponding to real survey data.
  • Undergraduate research in the program Research in Industrial Projects for Undergraduates (RIPS), UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, Jun-Aug 2003
  • I worked in a team of four people who developed and implemented algorithms for improving quality of images from film scanners in the project of Image Correction given by Los Alamos National Laboratory.
