In a nutshell…

I am a Research Engineer at the Data Security Group in the Institute for Infocomm Research. My research focuses on enabling secure and privacy preserving data analytics. Specifically, I optimize and implement protocols using Homomorphic Encryption that enable collaborative analytics for real world use cases in healthcare. I also research mechanisms that allow machine learning research to be conducted in a provably privacy preserving manner.
