Eysa Lee is a PhD student in the cryptography program at Northeastern University, advised by Professor Abhi Shelat. Eysa’s research involves the design of efficient cryptographic protocols. Prior to joining Khoury College of Computer Sciences, Eysa earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin.

What are the specifics of your graduate education (thus far)?

I’m doing my PhD at Khoury College of Computer Sciences, under the supervision of Professor Abhi Shelat.

What are your research interests?

My research interests lie in the design of efficient cryptographic protocols. I was always generally interested in theoretical computer science, but I locked in on cryptography after the very first lecture I attended of the undergrad crypto course back home.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

I’m currently studying questions related to multiparty computation.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

The fact that we can perform so many tasks with incredibly strong security guarantees using cryptography fascinates me.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

I’d like to be part of the effort to deploy MPC to build real world systems with stronger security guarantees.
