About Seny

I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Brown University. From 2008 to 2016, I was a researcher at Microsoft Research (Redmond Lab). My work focuses on designing and analyzing cryptographic algorithms, protocols and systems; often motivated by privacy issues in cloud computing, surveillance and databases. I maintain interests in various aspects of theory and systems, including applied and theoretical cryptography, data structures and algorithms, cloud computing, databases, economics, technology policy and networking.
