Ahmed Ferozpuri graduated Cum Laude from George Mason University in 2007 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a B.S. in Computer Science. After graduating, Ahmed worked for various DoD contractors in Northern Virginia specializing in cell-phone based electronics, network analysis, and radar systems. He gained experience developing and designing embedded systems, high-level C++ programs for network analysis, and Java programs for data visualization. As an independent contractor, Ahmed has developed professional websites and programs using CSS/HTML, PHP, MySQL, Javascript, Flash, and various content management systems. In Fall 2014, Ahmed started his M.S. degree in Computer Engineering specializing in cryptography and digital design. His current projects include lattice-based cryptography and the high-speed implementation using VHDL of several CAESAR candidates.
