His research focus is on designing data protection protocols with improved security and is supported by an ERC research grant.
"I am motivated by the prospect of knowing that my work will result in concrete applications. When quantum computers become real, the world will have to switch to cryptography with stronger security. It is therefore essential to start planning for this now, and propose an alternative that people can trust."
Dr. Lyubashevsky joined the IBM Research – Zurich Laboratory in August of 2015. He was previously an INRIA researcher (chargé de recherche) in the crypto group at the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, from 2010-2015.
Dr. Lyubashevsky received his Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego, in August 2008 with a thesis on building efficient, provably secure cryptographic functions based on the hardness of lattice problems. He was then a post-doctoral research fellow in the Foundations of Computing group at Tel-Aviv University until 2010.
