I am a PostDoc researcher at the COSIC research group and at LANTAM taskforce of the imec-DistriNet research group at KU Leuven in Belgium.
My research activities are supervised by
Research interests (more here):
- Secure multiparty computation (MPC) and homomorphic encryption (HE)
- Storage security using applied cryptography
- Middleware and software architecture: adaptation, reflection and data security
- Cloud computing infrastructure: capacity planning, container orchestration frameworks
I received a PhD degree from KU Leuven (Belgium, 2021), a Master’s degree in distributed systems and computer networks from the University of Antwerp (Belgium, 2014), and a Bachelor’s degrees in computer hardware engineering from the University of Isfahan (Iran, 2010).
Previously, I was a research associate at the imec-DistriNet research group, KU Leuven. Before joining imec-DistriNet, I worked on cloud computing subjects in Alcatel-Lucent (now Nokia) as part of my Master’s thesis research. Furthermore, I worked for a number of years in the software industry as a software engineer in the Brussels region.
The latest news and what am I doing now?
- Our paper has been accepted at ICSOC’21 (15% acceptance rate); the paper was based on a collaboration with several colleagues at distrinet and a Flemish industry partner.
- I successfully defended my PhD on November 18, 2021.
- At COSIC, my current goal is to understand and explore the applications of secure multiparty computation (MPC) and homomorphic encryption (HE).
- My master’s thesis students: Jonathan Du & Pieter-Jan Vrielynck successfully defended their thesis.
- I supervise 3 smart master’s thesis students.
- (on hold atm due to my heavy workload) Working on an extension to ScrambleDB to support more functionalities without extra leakage
