Paolo Palmieri, Ph.D.

I am a Lecturer in Cyber Security at University College Cork (Ireland) – a position roughly equivalent to assistant professor in North America.

I earned my Ph.D. in Cryptography in January 2013, at the Crypto Group of the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium). I then moved to Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), where I was a post-doctoral researcher for 2 years, working on privacy-enhancing technologies. Before joining UCC, I was a Lecturer in Computing at Bournemouth University (2015-16), and a lecturer in Cyber Security at Cranfield University (2016-17), in the United Kingdom.

Most of my research work in cyber security focuses on cryptography, privacy and anonymity. My research interests include secure computation, privacy-enhancing technologies, anonymity protocols, location privacy and smart cities.

I am always looking for motivated students interested in contributing to the research of our group.

NEWS: I am currently looking to hire a PhD student on the project Cryptographic privacy-preserving protocols for location based services. The PhD position is fully funded for 4-years, including a monthly stipend and a travel budget for conferences. Please see the ad on the IACR website for information on how to apply.
