Hi, I'm Edward!
I'm a 3rd year PhD student studying computer systems and security at Carnegie Mellon University, co-advised by Wenting Zheng and Fraser Brown and supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My primary research is on building secure and optimized systems for various cryptographic protocols.

Silph: A Framework for Scalable and Accurate Generation of Hybrid MPC Protocols
IEEE Security and Privacy | 2023
In this paper, we present Silph, a framework that can automatically compile a program written in a high-level language to an optimized, hybrid MPC protocol that mixes multiple MPC primitives securely and efficiently. Compared to prior works, our compilation speed is improved by up to 30000×. On various database analytics and machine learning workloads, the MPC protocols generated by Silph match or outperform prior work by up to 3.6×.

Climbing Mt. CSE 125
Jan. 4, 2021
Reflecting on CSE 125, both as a student and as a TA, I have to admit that this has been by far my favorite course I have taken at UCSD. I enjoyed all of it: from blue skying new game designs and features with my fellow teammates to staying up late in the labs ordering McDonald's food delivery to remotely testing out games on the demo machines this past Spring.
Built from a template by Karl Grossmann.
Design inspired by Brittany Chiang.
