Daniel Wichs

Senior Scientist

I am a Senior Scientist at NTT Research and an Associate Professor of Computer Science in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University. I received my PhD in Computer Science from New York University, and my MS in Computer Science and BS in Mathematics from Stanford University.

My research covers all aspects of modern cryptography, including its theoretical foundations and its applications to information security. My recent research relates to the cryptographic challenges involved in outsourcing data and computation to the cloud; in particular, this includes the construction of homomorphic cryptosystems that allow the cloud to compute on digitally encrypted and signed data while maintaining its privacy and authenticity.
