Professor Wichs focuses on modern cryptography, and his research interests also include computer and network security. His recent research relates to leakage resilience cryptography, which involves preventing hackers from gaining useful information from devices. He is also examining the security and integrity of data stored on the cloud rather than a private computer or network.
Before joining the Northeastern faculty, Professor Wichs earned his PhD in computer science at New York University in 2011 and was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship at the IBM Research T.J. Watson Center.
