Misha Volkhov

I am a second year PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, BTL/LFCS, working on zero-knowledge proofs and private smart contracts, advised by Dr. Markulf Kohlweiss. I finished MPRI master's programme in 2019, and my bachelor's degree is from ITMO University (CT department, 2017). I have been a part of Serokell team since 2015 working on several blockchain-related projects, Cardano SL being one of the biggest. My area of dev expertise is mostly haskell ecosystem related (which I'm working with since 2015).
