Abhishek Jain

Associate Professor in Computer Science, Johns Hopkins University

I am broadly interested in cryptography, computer security and privacy and related topics in theoretical computer science. My recent work focuses on problems involving computations on private data and their integrity, specially in the context of new technologies such as blockchains.

I am a member of the Cryptography Group and the Information Security Institute as well as the Theory Group at Johns Hopkins University. I will be on sabbatical Fall 2021 - Spring 2022 at UC Berkeley.

My research is generously supported by NSF, DARPA, Samsung and JHU Catalyst award. Thanks to NSF for the 2020 Career Award.

Brief Bio: I completed my postdoctoral research at MIT CSAIL and BUSEC with Shafi Goldwasser and Ran Canetti, and my Ph.D. at UCLA where I was advised by Amit Sahai and Rafail Ostrovsky.
