Personal Details

I am a Post-Doc in Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine, USA.

Research interests:
Building a secure and privacy-preserving IoT sensor data-driven system that captures user-related data and requires the development of security techniques to deal with a high velocity and volume of data for consent management, data storage according to data retention policies, and data processing.
Building a secure and privacy-preserving system for collaborative computations over the sensor data and that requires the development of scalable security techniques that can learn ML models over a large volume of datasets.


Post-Doc advisor: Prof. Sharad Mehrotra

I completed my Ph.D. in Department of Computer Science at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beersheva, Israel.
I am blessed to become an academic son of Prof. Shlomi Dolev and getting guidance from Prof. Jeffrey Ullman during my Ph.D. work as well as in present.
