I am a researcher in the Data Security and Privacy group in IBM Research - Haifa. My current research is in the area of privacy and data security. Specifically, data masking and data classification. Our work on the Data Masking Toolkit (Magen) includes developing advanced masking methods such as Format Preserving Encryption and Tokenization as well as support for masking complex formats such as Docx, Pptx and PDF. The data classification work focuses on identifying and classifying data items in structural databases by researching new methods. Before joining IBM, I received my Ph.D. on the topic of Intrusion Detection Systems from Northeastern University working under Prof. David Kaeli in the computer architecture research laboratory (NUCAR).
