Computer Science

My research interest is in the field of cryptography, with a focus on secure protocols, ranging from their theoretical foundations to real-world applications.


I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Computer Science in Bar-Ilan, which I joint in 2019. Prior to joining Bar-Ilan, I was a Vice-President, Cryptography Research Lead at JP Morgan AI Research (NY), and beforehand a Simons Foundation junior fellow at Cornell Tech, NY. I was a postdoc at IBM TJ Watson Research center, NY and an ICORE-algo fellow at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. I received my Ph.D. in Bar-Ilan in 2015, under the supervision of Yehuda Lindell.
