Dimitris Papadopoulos


I am an Associate Professor at the Computer Science and Engineering Department of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I received my PhD in Computer Science from Boston University and I was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Insitute for Advanced Computer Science of the University of Maryland. Previously, I received my Diploma in Applied Mathematics from the National Technical University of Athens.

My research focus is the development of novel cryptographic protocols for a variety of application scenarios and problems related to cloud data privacy, collaborative maching learning, and blockchain settings. I regularly work on cryptographic schemes such as searchable encryption, verifiable computation, zero-knowledge arguments, etc., aiming for provably secure solutions and optimized implemented systems.

**Currently looking to hire PhD students and Post-Docs for 2024! Areas of focus are zero-knowledge proofs, oblivious primitives on TEEs, and searchable encryption, but can consider any other area of cryptography. Interested candidates send me an e-mail with your latest CV and a short paragraph on your topics of interest**
