Miranda Christ


I am a third-year computer science PhD student in the theory group at Columbia University. I am fortunate to be co-advised by Tal Malkin and Mihalis Yannakakis. I'm interested in practically motivated theoretical problems, especially in the areas of cryptography, privacy, and complexity.

I'm also a research intern at the Andreessen Horowitz crypto research group, led by Tim Roughgarden.
