Dimitris Papadopoulos


I am 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. Prior to this, 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.

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. Before joining Boston University, I received my Diploma in Applied Mathematics from the National Technical University of Athens under the supervision of Antonios Symvonis.

During my graduate studies I was a research intern at IBM Research in Zurich, Switzerland, working with Dr. Christian Cachin on secure multi-client cloud applications and at Verisign Labs, working with Duane Wessels and Shumon Huque on the implementation of the NSEC5 extension for DNSSEC.
