I’m a research scientist at NTT in Japan. My main research area is cryptography, though I am broadly interested in information security and theoretical computer science. My research focuses on how to protect computer program while preserving its functionality, how to achieve secure computation without leaking information, and designing efficient and versatile cryptographic building blocks. More specific topics are
- Program Obfuscation/Watermarking/Copy-Protection
- Functional Encryption
- Lattice-Based Cryptography
- Quantum Cryptography
- May. 2022. A paper on ZK for QMA was accepted by CRYPTO 2022.
- May. 2022. The revised full version of the paper on IO from SKFE was accepted by Journal of Cryptology.
- Mar. 2022. A paper on functional encryption for Turing machines on ePrint archive
- Feb. 2022. A paper on watermarking PRFs against quantum adversaries was accepted by Eurocrypt 2022.
- Jan. 2022. Invited to be a program committee member of CRYPTO 2022.

On pronunciation of my first name
I do not know English words whose pronunciation are exactly the same as that of Ryo. The pronunciation of Rio, which is the name of a city in Brazil, is similar to that of Ryo.
