Prof. Carmit Hazay


Deputy Director and Head of Scientific Committee

I am a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Engineering at Bar-Ilan University. I received my Ph.D. in 2009 from the Computer-Science department, Bar-Ilan University under the supervision of Yehuda Lindell.  Prior to starting at Bar-Ilan University I spent a year in Weizmann Institute of Science and IDC, Israel and two years in Aarhus University, Denmark, pursuing postdoctoral research.

My main research interests are in the field of Cryptography, with a focus on secure multi-party computation. I am interested in developing secure protocols with a focus on computational and communication efficiency.
