Pratyush Mishra

Hi! I'm Pratyush. I recently completed my PhD in Computer Science at UC Berkeley under the excellent supervision of Alessandro Chiesa and Raluca Ada Popa.

I am currently a cryptographer and founding scientist at Aleo, a startup based on my research project Zexe (see below).

Before that, I completed my BSc in EECS at UC Berkeley, where I did research under the guidance of David Wagner.

My research lies at the intersection of cryptography and computer security, with a focus on efficient realizations and applications of cryptographic proof systems and secure computation.

I am a co-author of the arkworks ecosystem, which is a collection of libraries for zkSNARKs.
