About Roy

I am a PhD student at UC Santa Cruz doing research under Owen Arden and within the Languages, Systems, and Data (LSD) Lab. My research aims to connect principles and techniques from computer security, distributed systems, consensus protocols, and blockchain to develop and design systems that enforce data privacy and provide mechanisms to verify the integrity of data. Specifically, I’m interested in designing mechanisms that verify the integrity of data-driven computations in an adversarial controlled decentralized network.
