744, Motooka, Nishi-ku,





Currently, I am a JSPS postdoctoral fellow at Prof. Tsuyoshi Takagi's group, Institute of Mathematics for Industry in Kyushu University, Japan. The fellowship is supported by JSPS(Japan Society of the Promotion of Science) project of Japan. My research interests are in the area of applied cryptography and network security, distributed trust and privacy protection, secure and fair multiparty comptation etc. Especially, I am interested in design and analysis of privacy-carrying cryptographic technology with applications to decentrilized trust, security and privacy.
