I recently graduated with Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIT, where I was fortunate to be advised by incomparable Ron Rivest. My Ph.D. thesis, also on libsnark, won the George M. Sprowls Award for Best MIT Ph.D. Thesis in Computer Science. Before coming to MIT I did my undergraduate work at University of Latvia under the excellent guidance of Andris Ambainis.
I am a member of AdorationBoston. If you are a Catholic in Boston area you should join us.
My email is I have (at
least temporarily) stopped using email. I still send and
receive physical mail, though:
madars at mit
dot edu. Regrettably, I get more email than I am able to
respond to. Please don't take it personally.

My calendar is also available; scheduling is often tight, but I will always make time to take my friends to Mass, woods, or — better — both!
