I am a Ph.D. student in the CS department of Purdue since 2021. My advisor is Prof. Aniket Kate. I am a member of the Freedom Research Lab.
In my research, I look at how to make industry and academic work on cryptography, distributed systems, blockchains and applied security match up better, especially in how they handle efficiency and security. I've looked at things like consensus and data provenance. I see that companies focus on making their prototypes fast and efficient, while academia cares more about making sure these prototypes are formalized and secure. This difference creates a gap. My main question is: Can we find a way to make prototypes that are both fast and formalized?
