I’m an engineer with a background in software engineering, applied cryptography, and protocol engineering. I’ve worked with secure hardware, lattice cryptography and fully homomorphic encryption. Done two tours of duty in the semiconductor industry, in the first case, writing physics codes for the CAD / simulation of semiconductor devices and in the second, writing cryptologic codes at a large chipmaker. Also worked at two large cloud computing firms in the infra / platform space. My experience includes writing cryptographic libraries that leverage on chip and peripheral cryptologic hardware, and working with network HSMs, cloud PaaS, and embedded systems. In the area of layer 1 consensus, I’ve worked on the cryptologic aspects of Byzantine Agreements with honest majority. Regarding standards, I’ve worked with govt. and industry groups (NIST, IEFT/IRTF, ISO/IEC) on standardizing new / existing cryptography in several domains, along with the specification of necessary countermeasures for apps vulnerable to logical and physical attacks on their secrets.
