I am a research scientist at DFINITY. I am working on exciting new ways to provide secure communication in potentially malicious wide-area network environments.

Before that I was a research scientist at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, a postdoctoral scholar at UC Berkeley with Prof. Scott Shenker, and a postdoc at VMware Research. I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, for which I received the Hans Wiener Prize for Excellent PhD Dissertation. My research is focused on network architecture, security, fault tolerance, and performance.


CESSNA is a framework that provides strong correctness guarantees for otherwise unreliable edge computing.

[ACNS '18] We present a system for secure and fault tolerant enterprise key management for SSH and TLS.
