My name is Tiantian Gong and I usually go by Tian, which means heaven or sky in Chinese. I am currently a PhD student at CS department, Purdue University, working with Professor Aniket Kate. I received my undergraduate degree in Economics from Renmin University of China, Beijing, China. I expect to receive my Master degree in CS from Purdue University, West Lafayette, US, in May, 2022.
My research interests are mostly in the intersection of distributed computing, applied cryptography, game theory and mechanism design. I usually work on problems related to correctness and privacy protection in secure distributed computation using tools from cryptography, math and algorithmic economics. In general, my motivation for research is to understand fundamentals of computation and math as much as I can.
I'm serving on the Computer Science Graduate Student Board (CSGSB) for 2022-2023 academic year.
