His research focus is on designing data protection protocols with improved security and is supported by an ERC starting research grant FELICITY (Foundations of Efficient Lattice Cryptography), the goal of which is to design practical public key cryptographic schemes that will remain secure even in the presence of quantum computers.
Dr. Lyubashevsky joined the IBM Research – Zurich Laboratory in August of 2015. He was previously an INRIA researcher (chargé de recherche) in the crypto group at the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, from 2010-2015.
Dr. Lyubashevsky received his Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego, in August 2008 with a thesis on building efficient, provably secure cryptographic functions based on the hardness of lattice problems. He was then a post-doctoral research fellow in the Foundations of Computing group at Tel-Aviv University until 2010.
