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.
