Principal Research Scientist

Email: rancohen@ccs.neu.edu

I am a principal research scientist at the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University.

Prior to that, I spent two great years as a post-doctoral researcher in the Boston area, working with Shafi Goldwasser at MIT CSAIL, with abhi shelat at Northeastern University, and with Ran Canetti at Boston University, and one year at Tel Aviv University working with Iftach Haitner.
I completed my Ph.D. in 2016 working at the Cryptography Research Group at Bar-Ilan University, where I was very fortunate to have Yehuda Lindell as my advisor.
I received my M.Sc. from the Department of Mathematics at Bar-Ilan University under the supervision of Boris Kunyavskii.

My research interests are in cryptography and distributed computing, with a focus on secure multiparty computation and consensus protocols.
