Prof. Jean-Pierre Hubaux is a faculty member of the School of Information and Communication Sciences at EPFL. His research aims at laying the foundations and developing the tools to protect privacy in tomorrow’s hyper-connected world. He is focusing notably on network privacy and security, with an emphasis on mobile/wireless networks and on data protection, with an emphasis on health-related data and especially genomic data. He has also studied privacy and security mechanisms (especially for mobile networks) in the presence of selfish players.He has worked on the topic of genome privacy since 2011 and has designed related cryptographic solutions, notably in collaboration with the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV). He has co-chaired the first workshop devoted to the topic (in Dagstuhl, Germany, in 2013) and is a co-founder and chair of the steering committee of the International Workshop on Genome Privacy and Security (GenoPri).He is a Fellow of both IEEE (2008) and ACM (2010).
