Rawane Issa

I am an applied cryptographer who recently graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from Boston University where I was advised by Mayank Varia. I am interested in the design and analysis of efficient secure protocols. I am joining Galois, inc. as a Cryptography & Secure Computation Researcher in Fall 2022.

I am very excited about furthering the adoption of cryptographic tools in practice, making them more accessible to a wider audience and demonstrating their potential for advancing important aspects of public social welfare. Prior to joining BU, I was an undergraduate in Computer and Communication Engineering at the American University of Beirut and graduated in 2016.
