About me

I am currently a visiting professor in the Department of Computer Science at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, USA. From Oct 2002 to Jul 2022, I was a faculty member in the Thammasat School of Engineering in Thailand. My research interests include cryptography, computer and network security, and distributed systems. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at University of California, San Diego. For most of my graduate career, I was a member of the crypto lab in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. My dissertation is entitled “Simultaneously Ensuring Privacy and Authenticity in Digital Communication.”

Before moving to the area of cryptography, I did work with Professor Keith Marzullo and Dr. Jeremy Sussman on an optimistic wrapper service for CORBA called COPE. The system is part of the Serrano project, an ongoing project in collaboration with University of Texas at Austin.

Before moving to UCSD, I worked in the Laboratory of Computer Science at MIT in the Programming Systems Research Group. The project involves exploiting both document content and hyperlink information for document clustering. See our publication for details.
