About me

I am the Vice President of Cryptography and a Principal Scientist at Duality Technologies, Inc. My current research interests are applied lattice-based cryptography, fully homomorphic encryption, and privacy-preserving machine learning. I am a co-founder and project lead of the OpenFHE software cryptography library project, which implements fully homomorphic encryption and other lattice cryptography primitives. I serve on the Steering Committee of the HomomorphicEncryption.org standardization consortium. My research has been funded by DARPA, IARPA, NIH, Simons Foundation, and Sloan Foundation. I received Moscow Mayor's Young Scientist Award (2005) and led a winning team at the iDASH 2018 competition.

Previously I was an Associate Research Professor at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, a Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, a Principal Consultant at Presidio, and held several senior industrial computer science/information technology positions. My other research interests are time series analysis using statistical physics methods and mathematical modeling of membrane technology processes. I am a co-author of the Flicker Noise Spectroscopy (FNS) method for analyzing the time and spatial series generated by natural systems (open-source implementation of the FNS toolkit is available here).
