I am a cryptographer in the Security group of the Cognitive Computing & Industry Solutions department in IBM Research - Zurich, where I have worked since August of 2015. Prior to this, I was an Inria researcher (chargé de recherche) in the crypto group at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris from 2010-2015, and before that a post-doc in the Foundations of Computing group at Tel-Aviv University (hosted by Oded Regev) from 2008 - 2010. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego (advised by Daniele Micciancio) in 2008.
My main research focus is on designing efficient cryptographic protocols based on the hardness of lattice problems. Part of my research 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.
