Short Bio

Salim El Rouayheb is an associate professor in the ECE Department at Rutgers University. From 2013 to 2017, he was an assistant professor at the ECE Department at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. He was a research scholar at the Electrical Engineering Department at Princeton University (2012-2013) and a postdoc at the EECS department at the University of California, Berkeley (2010-2011). He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, in 2009. In 2019, he was the Rutgers University Walter Tyson Junior Faculty Chair. He received the Google Faculty Award in 2018 and the NSF CAREER award in 2016. His research interests lie in the area of information-theoretic security and privacy of data in networks and distributed systems.

General Research Interests

  • Information theoretic security in distributed systems

  • Private information retrieval and search

  • Secure machine learning algorithms

  • Data synchronization in distributed systems
