Christina GarmanAssistant Professor
I am looking for Ph.D. students and other talented, highly motivated students to join my research group.
If you are a prospective Ph.D. student, please make sure to apply and put my name on the application! If you are already at Purdue and are interested in working with me, I highly recommend that you take my CS 590 class on Practical and Applied Cryptography in Fall 2018.

Zerocash: privacy-preserving decentralized anonymous payment system
Christina Garman is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University. Her research interests focus largely on practical and applied cryptography. More specifically, her work has focused on the security of deployed cryptographic systems from all aspects, including the evaluation of real systems, improving the tools that we have to design and create them, and actually creating real, deployable systems. Some of her recent work has been on the weaknesses of RC4 in TLS, cryptographic automation, decentralized anonymous e-cash, and decentralized anonymous credentials. She is also one of the co-founders of ZCash, a startup building a cryptocurrency based on Zerocash. A copy of her CV can be found here [PDF].
