Hi, my name is Shai Halevi and this is my homepage. I am a research fellow in the Algorand Foundation. Before that I was a researcher in the Cryptography Research Group in IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. I received my PhD in Computer Science in 1997 from MIT, and my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science (in 1991, 1993) from the Technion in Israel.

My research area is cryptography, and in particular cryptographic protocols and the building blocks from which they are constructed. See my publication list for a better idea of the things that interest me, or see my CV for a full listing. Some other things that I am doing are described below:

I also served on the program committees of Eurocrypt 2019, ACNS 2018, ACM-CCS 2017, Eurocrypt 2016, TCC 2015, CRYPTO 2013, PKC 2013, Pairing 2012, TCC 2011, Pairing 2010, Asiacrypt 2009, Eurocrypt 2008, ISC 2008, Asiacrypt 2007, ISC 2007, Eurocrypt 2007, CT-RSA 2007, VietCrypt 2006, Crypto 2005, Eurocrypt 2005, ACNS 2003, PKC 2002, CT-RSA 2002, Eurocrypt 2001, and Crypto 2000.
