Mohammad Hossein Faghihi Sereshgi

PhD Candidate

Department of Computer Science

University of Rochester


I am a PhD candidate at University of Rochester studying Theory in Computer Science. My research is mainly focused on theories in Computer Science and I am supervised by Dr. Muthuramakrishnan Venkitasubramaniam. I use concepts in Multi-Party Computation and Zero-Knowledge Proofs to design and implement protocols for computations. I am currently working on usability of Multi-Party Computation in Machine Learning. I received an MSc degree in Computer Science from University of Rochester and an MSc degree in Electrical Engineering from Isfahan University of Technology.
