Aditya Shridhar Hegde

I’m a 5th year Integrated Masters (B.Tech + M.Tech) student at IIIT Bangalore where I’m majoring in Computer Science and Engineering. I’m interested in cryptography and more broadly, in theoretical computer science.

I have been working on problems related to computing on private data over the past year under the supervision of Prof. Ashish Choudhury. As part of my Master’s thesis, I am working on improving the efficiency of Multi-Party Computation protocols in the asynchronous and partially synchronous network settings.

You can find me spending my free time reading, lurking on Reddit or Twitter and occasionally binge-watching anime and TV-shows.


Oct 20, 2020 Our paper on high throughput MPC over small population in hybrid networks was accepted into INDOCRYPT 2020!
Aug 8, 2020 I attended the Cornell, Maryland, Max-Planck Pre-doctoral Research School.
May 18, 2020 I will be interning remotely with the ENCRYPTO group over the summer.
Apr 20, 2020 Our paper on agent based modelling of ethics was accepted into IJCAI 2020!
Mar 6, 2020 I was awarded the DAAD WISE scholarship for summer research internship. Cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jan 22, 2020 I attended the workshop on Secure Multi-Party Computation: Theory and Practice at IISc.
