Eric Miles
I recently received my Ph.D. from Northeastern University, where I was fortunate to have been advised by Emanuele Viola.
Beginning this fall, I am very excited to be joining the cryptography/security group at UCLA as a postdoctoral researcher!
I am interested in theoretical computer science generally; much of my research focuses on the foundations of cryptography.
