Blockchain as a solution to internet voting

My research topic of the doctoral dissertation is “Blockchain as a solution to internet voting”. Most of my research focuses on blockchains and cryptocurrencies (CS 251), government, cryptography, MPCs, PCPs (CS294), and zkSNARKs.

Intuition vs rationality

I’m researching the concept of rationality and intuition. I am looking for a complete decision-making model that includes all: rationality, intuition, aspiration, and emotions. It will let me extract the emotions from the equations and hence, measure their influence on people—all of that for a bigger Project Marlin (coming soon). Currently, I’m researching Herbert Simon’s and Daniel Kahneman’s works.

Dimensionalism

I’m researching the concept of mental models as it is a promising complement to my idea of “dimensionalism”, and a hypothesis “A point cannot understand a line”.

Other activities

My free time is devoted to dancing classes, participating Toastmasters club, and Startup School.
