I am a Professor at the Department of Computer Science, Georgetown University and an Affiliate Professor at Georgetown Law. Prior to joining Georgetown, I was at the Department of Computer Science, Ben-Gurion University. Since 2011, I am visiting at the Center for Research in Computation and Society (CRCS), Harvard University.

Research: I work 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 creating solid practices and technological solutions. I am particularly interested in intersection points between privacy and various disciplines within and outside computer science including cryptography, machine learning, game theory, complexity theory, algorithmics, statistics, databases, and privacy law and policy.

New: Differential Privacy: A Primer for a Non-technical Audience (Preliminary Version).
