Dr. Ewa Syta obtained her Ph.D. in Computer Science from Yale University in 2015. Prior to joining Yale, she earned her B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science and Cryptology from Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland. Her research interests lie in computer security and distributed systems. The long-term objective of her research is to bring cutting-edge cryptographic techniques to real-world applications to shape tomorrow’s digital world. She has been working on effective identity management methods, stronger anonymous communication technologies, practical privacy-preserving authentication protocols, unbiasable distributed randomness protocols, ways to keep Internet authorities honest and accountable, and most recently, on blockchain technologies, and provable security for real-world protocols. Her current work is funded by the NSF Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) Medium Collaborative Award: "Applied Cryptographic Protocols with Provably Secure Foundation".
Dr. Syta is as enthusiastic about teaching as she is about research. Her teaching interests include cryptography, computer security, privacy, ethical issues in computing, and programming. Dr. Syta’s teaching philosophy reflects her belief that a structured learning environment that supports individual learning styles yields the best results. She strives to create an engaging, open and inclusive forum to facilitate student learning and personal and intellectual growth.
