👨🏽‍🎓 Short Bio

I’m a PhD student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley. I’m very fortunate to be advised by Sanjam Garg.

Mission. I believe privacy should be a given, not something people need to actively assess or manage. I want to make privacy-preserving technology accessible to all by designing and building tools with privacy at their core.

Research interests. I mostly work on secure messaging, though I’m broadly interested in the theory and application of cryptographic protocols. Beyond secure messaging, I’ve looked into practical secret sharing and blockchain forensics.

Here’s my CV. Feel free to email me at fairoze@berkeley.edu!
