About Patrick McCorry

I am under the supervision of Feng Hao. My colleagues are Sia, Taha, Maryam and Ehsan.

At heart I am an Engineer and interests include cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, cryptography and decentralised systems.

Why Cryptography? It is not just about hiding information (encryption) - it is about minimising trust (i.e. trusting mathematics, not humans).
