Research Interest

His research focuses on the security, sustainability and scalability of proof-of-work blockchains, as well as on cross-blockchain information and asset exchange. Recent work also includes empirical analysis of blockchain data, evaluation of fairness in mining pools and modeling of miner behavior.

Bio

Alexei received a master’s degree in Software Engineering and Internet Computing and a bachelor’s degree in Software and Information Engineering at the Vienna University of Technology. He is currently working towards his Ph.D. degree on the analysis, modeling and extension of proof-of-work blockchain protocols at the Imperial College London.
