Hi, my name is Shai Halevi. Since 1997 I am a Research Staff Member in the Cryptography Research Group in IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. I got my PhD in Computer Science from the Laboratory for Computer Science in MIT. I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Tehchnion in Israel.
My research area is cryptography, and in particular cryptographic protocols and the building blocks from which they are constructed. See my publication list for a better idea of the things that interest me, or see my CV for a full listing. Some other things that I am doing are described below:
- I spent the 2010-2011 academic year in Israel, visiting IBM
HRL and Tel-Aviv University. I also taught a class in the 2011
spring term in Tel-Aviv, on
Encryption and Lattices.
- During 2006-2011 I was the membership secretary of the International Association for Cryptologic
Research (IACR). Starting 2012 I am a director of the IACR.
- I wrote a software package for Web Submission and Review of papers to
conferences. This package is available as open-source
under the terms of the
Common Public License (CPL) v1.0.
- I am an associate editor in TISSES (ACM Transactions on Information and System Security).
- At some point I put together a few tips on
how to write a clear submission
