Paul S. Lou


Hi! I'm Paul. I'm a Ph.D. student at UCLA working with Amit Sahai. I finished my undergraduate degrees majoring in computer science, mathematics, and statistics at the University of Pennsylvania where I was fortunate to work with Nadia Heninger. Generally, I'm interested in both applied and theoretical aspects of cryptography.
