Foteini Baldimtsi

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the BU Security group at Boston University. I also have a research affiliation with the Crypto.Sec group at University of Athens. My research interests are in cryptography, security and data privacy with a special focus in electronic cash, blockchain technologies and private authentication techniques. 

I received my Ph.D. from Brown University in May 2014 where I was supervised by Anna Lysyanskaya. During my time at Brown I was fortunate to spent a semester at Microsoft Research in Redmont, WA working in the Cryptography group with Melissa Chase and a summer at IBM Research in Zurich working as a member of the Cryptography and Security group.

You can find my CV here.
