My PhD committee members are: Bryan Ford (adviser, Yale --> EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne)), Joan Feigenbaum (Yale),
Ramki Gummadi (Yale --> Amazon), Anil Somayaji (Carleton University, Canada)
I work on usable cyber-security, privacy, online anonymity, social networks and distributed systems. My research focuses on leveraging online social networks and cryptographic techniques to provide anonymity preserving online identity services.
I am carrying out research for the Dissent project which is part of the multi-agency Safer Warfighter Communications project.
John Maheswaran is a a PhD student in computer science at Yale University where he works with Prof Bryan Ford in the decentralized and distributed systems group. He completed his undergraduate studies in computer science at the University of Cambridge (UK) where he worked with Turing Award Laureate the late Prof Robin Milner on models of computation and ubiquitous computing. His current research interests include networking, security, privacy and distributed systems.
