Dana Dachman-Soled is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering and a member of the Maryland Cybersecurity Center.
Dachman-Soled’s research focuses on the foundations of cryptography, though her interests extend to property testing of Boolean functions and cryptographic hardness of learning. Her work encompasses a broad range of problems in cryptography, including security against so-called “physical attacks,” secure computation, and foundational problems.
Dachman-Soled received her doctorate in computer science from Columbia University in 2011. She spent two years as a post-doc at Microsoft Research New England before coming to the University of Maryland.
