Prof. Benny Pinkas


Deputy Director and Head of Scientific Committee

I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science in Bar Ilan University, which I joined in 2010. I received my Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science in 2000, under the supervision of Moni Naor. Afterwards, I was a researcher in the research lab of Intertrust Technologies and in HP Labs, and a faculty member in the University of Haifa. I was also a visiting scientist in Google during my sabbatical in the 2011/2012 academic year.

My research area is in cryptography and computer security and privacy, with a focus on secure computation.
