Dimitris Papadopoulos


I am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science and Engineering Department of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Previously, I was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Insitute for Advanced Computer Science of the University of Maryland at College Park working with professors Papamanthou and Katz. I received my PhD in Computer Science at Boston University where I was a member of the BUSec group working under the advice of Nikos Triandopoulos. Before joining Boston University, I received my Diploma in Applied Mathematics from the National Technical University of Athens under the supervision of Antonios Symvonis.

My research is focused on the development of cryptographic protocols for verifiable computation over outsourced datasets, database query authentication, and data and computation privacy in the cloud setting. I am interested in designing schemes that are provably secure but also in bulding optimized systems that implement them. Other areas of interest include theoretical cryptography, applied network security, and economics of secure cloud computing.

I am currently looking for motivated PhD students and Post-Docs in the fields of Cryptography, Verifiable Computation, Privacy-preserving Query Evaluation, and Blockchain Protocols
