Cody Freitag

Postdoctoral Researcher
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Northeastern University and Boston University, working with Daniel Wichs and Ran Canetti, and am fortunately funded by a Khoury College Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship. My research primarily focuses on the theoretical foundations of cryptography. In particular, I'm interested in cryptographic proof systems and their applications in the decentralized setting of blockchains. I've also been interested in non-uniform models of security and differential privacy. In May 2023, I received my PhD in computer science at Cornell University (although technically at the Cornell Tech campus), advised by Rafael Pass. I did my undergrad at UT Austin, graduating in 2017 with degrees in computer science and math. Prior to that, I attended the unique Texas Academy of Math and Science for high school at UNT.
