My name is Michele Orrù. I am a PhD student at ENS as part of the Crypto Team (INRIA Project - Team CASCADE), under the supervision of Georg Fuchsbauer and Hoeteck Wee. Before ENS, I completed my graduate work in math at the University of Trento.

These days I mostly work on theoretical cryptography, focusing on multi-party computation and zero-knowledge proofs. In the past, I have contributed to Python, Debian, and Tor.
