Dimitris Papadopoulos


I am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science and Engineering Department of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I received my PhD in Computer Science from Boston University and I was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Insitute for Advanced Computer Science of the University of Maryland. Previously, I received my Diploma in Applied Mathematics from the National Technical University of Athens.

My research focus is the development of novel cryptographic protocols for a variety of application scenarios and problems related to cloud data privacy, distributed/federated maching learning, and blockchain settings. I regularly work on cryptographic schemes such as searchable encryption, verifiable computation, zero-knowledge arguments, etc. I am always aiming for provably secure solutions and for optimized implemented systems.
