Short Bio

Dr. Wouter Lueks is a tenure-track faculty member at the CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security. He is interested in solving real-world problems by designing end-to-end privacy-friendly systems. To do so he combines privacy, applied cryptography, and systems research. His work has real-world impact. For instance, his designs for privacy-friendly contact tracing have been deployed in millions of phones around the world, and his secure document search system is being deployed by a large organisation for investigative journalists.

From 2018 to 2022, he was a postdoctoral researcher at EPFL, Switzerland where he collaborated with Carmela Troncoso in the SPRING lab. He obtained his PhD in 2017 from the Radboud University, the Netherlands. During his PhD studies, he visited Ian Goldberg at the University of Waterloo, Canada.
