Jack O'Connor

I am a second-year PhD student at the Mathematics for Real-World Systems CDT in the University of Warwick, where I am fortunate to be advised by Tom Gur. My current research interests lie in theoretical computer science, with a particular focus on interactive proofs, cryptography and learning theory.
