Portrait of Hao Chen

Hao Chen

Senior Researcher


I am a senior researcher at MSR Redmond working in the cryptography and privacy research group. My research focuses on designing and building practically efficient protocols for privacy preserving computation tasks. Specifically, I have been working on improving fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) and secure multiparty computation (MPC), and using them to build efficient protocols for privacy preserving machine learning (PPML). I have been contributing to the SEAL homomorphic encryption library, and have been leading the development of COCOON , a secure multiparty computation library. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in mathematics in 2016 from University of Washington.
