Mr. Michele Ciampi

Research Associate

Research Interests

My research focuses on theory of Cryptography. More specifically, I am interested in Zero-Knowledge Proofs, multi-party computation protocols and Blockchain.

I am currently working for the H2020 project PRIViLEDGE (Privacy-Enhancing Cryptography in Distributed Ledgers) 

Biography

Michele Ciampi was born in Avellino in 1990. He took the Bachelor's Degree cum laude in Computer Science from University of Salerno in 2012 before completing his Master's Degree cum laude in Computer Science from University of Salerno in 2014.

In 2018 Michele completed his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Salerno. He was supervised by Prof. Giuseppe Persiano and had the chance to work with Prof. Ivan Visconti.

His thesis on "Round and Computational Efficiency of Two-Party Protocols" was rewarded with the  "Best PhD Thesis in Theoretical Computer Science Award 2018", from the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (Italian Chapter).

In 2016 Michele was a Visiting Graduate Researcher at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) under the supervision of Professor Rafail Ostrovsky. He spent the summer of 2017 in Aarhus University hosted by Prof. Ivan Damgaard and Prof. Claudio Orlandi.
