Visiting Associate Research Scientist

I am a faculty member at Tel Aviv University's School of Computer Science, and a Visiting Associate Research Scientist at Columbia University's Computer Science Department.

My research focus is information security, cryptography and algorithms. I am particularly interested in what happens when cryptographic systems meet the real world, where computation is faulty and leaky.

I head the Laboratory for Experimental Information Security (LEISec), where my group investigates side-channel information leakage in computers through physical emanations (e.g., acoustic, electric and electromagnetic) and via software (e.g., cache contention in local and cloud computing).

I cofounded SCIPR Lab, where we construct cryptographic zero-knowledge SNARK proof systems for ensuring the integrity of computation conducted on untrusted, faulty and malicious platforms.

I'm on the team that created the Zcash privacy-preserving cryptocurrency, and an author of the underlying Zerocash protocol.

Other research interests include digital currency, tamper resilience, homomorphic encryption, special-purpose code-breaking hardware and various aspects of network and systems security. See my publications for more information.
