I am a professor of computer science at the department of Computer Science, Ben-Gurion University. I am currently visiting the Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS), Harvard University.

My research is towards establishing rigorous practices for privacy in computation: identifying problems that result from the collection, sharing, and processing of information, formalizing these problems and studying them towards establishing solid practices and technological solutions. I am particularly interested in intersection points between privacy and various disciplines within and outside computer science: cryptography, machine learning, game theory, complexity, algorithms, statistics, and databases.

At Harvard I am working with the Privacy Tools for Sharing Research Data project.

In 2013, I received the ACM PODS Alberto O. Mendelzon Test-of-Time Award for my work with Irit Dinur "Revealing Information while Preserving Privacy" [PODS 2003].
