Emiliano De Cristofaro
Emiliano De Cristofaro's research includes privacy, security, and applied cryptography. Currently, he is working on cryptographic protocols for enhancing privacy in both well-established and emerging computing environments, and is also interested in the privacy and security aspects of wireless and pervasive communication. Emiliano enjoys addressing challenging research problems that combine theoretical insight with efficiency and practicality constraints.
Before joining PARC, Emiliano worked on the design and implementation of efficient protocols for privacy-preserving sharing of sensitive information at the University of California at Irvine. He also interned at a number of research labs. At NEC Europe Labs, Emiliano worked on resilient data aggregation in sensor networks. In INRIA Rhone-Alpes, he looked at private information leakage from Google's Web History service and co-designed a cryptographic protocol for ephemeral publishing. Finally, at Nokia Research Center (Lausanne), he co-designed cryptographic mechanisms for privacy protection in smartphone applications.
Dr. De Cristofaro received his Ph.D. from University of California, Irvine, and B.S. degree from Universita' di Salerno in Italy.
In his free time, Emiliano enjoys good coffee, surfing, studying foreign languages, and traveling.
