On April 26, 2023, I will be giving a presentation for the Notre Dame Book Club! My talk, “A Brief Introduction to Japanese Society and Culture”, will serve as a prelude to the Book Club’s discussion on the book “Before the Coffee Gets Cold” by Toshikazu Kawaguchi.
Our paper “SLAP: Simpler, Improved Private Stream Aggregation from Ring Learning With Errors” has been accepted at the Journal of Cryptology! The JoC is one of the best journals (arguably the best) in cryptography; needless to say, I am very happy to have a publication in the JoC. My coauthors are Ryan Karl (Carnegie Mellon U.), Ting Gong (U. Washington – Seattle), and Taeho Jung (Notre Dame).
For research contributions in 2021, I have been named a Senior Member at the European Alliance for Innovation (EAI). Senior Member Status is awarded for research contributions in the top 1% of all EAI contributing members.
On December 1, 2022, I will be returning to Albion College (my alma mater) to give a talk in the Colloquium Series of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science! My talk, “Privacy-Preserving Computation”, will discuss my work at Notre Dame, Google, and Meta within the wider context of data privacy.
