Fan Zhang is a PhD candidate at Cornell Tech. He's been working on connecting blockchains with off-chain resources (e.g., data, computation, people, etc.) to unleash the power of blockchains in real-world applications that require not only performance, but also confidentiality, access to authenticated input, and secure integration with other (e.g., legacy) systems.
Second-year PhD student at Cornell Tech. His research interest spans applied cryptography, blockchains and their intersection.
