When individuals surf the web, use social media, or access smart devices, they leave their digital footprints all over the Internet. An increasing awareness of the implications of digital fingerprinting/data mining has led to concerns over the usage and control of an individual's personal data by technology companies. My broad research objective is to address these concerns by inventing decentralized privacy-preserving techniques for the development of future networked systems, and their application in a global framework. While cryptocurrencies are gaining increasing popularity, few people are aware of the huge environmental toll associated with securing transactions on the blockchain. Bitcoin mining has now surpassed the energy requirements of a country like Argentina. With the heightened awareness of the devastating effects that climate change has on our planet, I propose to develop energy efficient and high transaction throughput protocols for the next-generation of cryptocurrencies, by developing novel consensus mechanisms, lightweight cryptographic protocols etc. Increasingly, the Internet is being controlled by a small number of powerful technology firms. To counter this threat I have created a framework for a Decentralized Internet. Social media platforms have now become a breeding ground for fake news, and are plagued by increasing abuse of individuals, minorities etc. I have initiated a programme of research which is looking into making these platforms safer by developing a framework for a global public-key infrastructure, which will securely identify users and eliminate the need for memorising passwords. In the e-Health space, I have developed a healthcare management ecosystem that allows a patient's medical records to be stored securely and anonymously on a blockchain. This enables data to be mined by third-parties to determine healthcare trends etc., without them inferring personal details of individual patients. Also, the Internet of Things (IoT) is going to play a major role in delivering the next-generation of healthcare systems.
