Rahul Satish

PhD Researcher

IT University of Copenhagen

I am a cryptography researcher. I am currently pursuing my PhD at IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark with Prof. Bernardo David. I work in the field of secure computation. My interests in particular include Secure Multiparty Computation, Zero Knowledge Proofs, Privacy Enhancing technologies. I have gained a special interest towards developing concretely efficient techniques in these fields, and bridging the gap between theory and practice. I have a masters in Computer Engineering from Bar-Ilan University, Israel.. I finished my undergraduation at BITS Pilani, Goa with a double major in Math and Electronics.

My masters thesis at The Center for Research in Applied Cryptography and Cyber Security, Bar Ilan Univeristy was supervised by Prof. Carmit Hazay. The dissertation was on circumventing lower bounds in garbled circuits. I finished my bachelors project at The Center for Research in Applied Cryptography and Cyber Security, Bar Ilan Univeristy supervised by Prof. Carmit Hazay and Prof. Muthu Venkitasubramaniam, where we worked on an efficient solution for the PSI-Sum Problem.

I have previously worked as a consultant researcher in the Privacy And Scaling explorations Group at Etheruem Foundation and at Chain Reaction, Israel. Apart from this, I have been a cryptography research intern at QED-it and at the Blockchain and Smart Contracts group at IBM Research India Labs.

Feel free to check out my CV and drop an e-mail if you want to chat with me! I am also planning to blog here.
