Jiaheng Zhang

I am a third-year Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at UC Berkeley, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Dawn Song. I also work closely with Prof. Yupeng Zhang. And I am a member of RISE Lab, Initiative for Cryptocurrencies&Contracts Lab(IC3) and Berkeley AI Research(BAIR).

My research interests lie in computer security and cryptography, especially zero-knowledge proofs and their applications on blockchain and machine learning models.

Prior to coming to Berkeley, I received my Bachelor's degree in ACM Honors Class of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Xiaotie Deng. During my undergraduate, I was also a research intern at Cornell, advised by Prof. Elaine Shi.

I had planned to be a research intern in Calibra Team at Facebook, working with Payman Mohassel and Kostas Chalkias this summer but defered to 2021 because of COVID-19.
