Yael Tauman Kalai

Senior Principal Researcher


I joined Microsoft Research New England in 2008 after being an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Georgia Tech and a postdoc at the Weizmann Institute in Israel and Microsoft Research in Redmond. I graduated from MIT, working in cryptography under the superb supervision of Shafi Goldwasser. I was also extremely fortunate to have the guidance of Adi Shamir for my master’s degree.

My main research interests are Cryptography, the Theory of Computation, and Security & Privacy.
