Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Salim El Rouayheb has been awarded a prestigious NSF CAREER Award in the amount of $623,977 to address the privacy challenges associated with cloud storage.

Due to the recent data revolution, a massive amount of data is now stored in the cloud to enable easy access for users sharing photos, videos, publications, opinions, and scientific data. Unfortunately, the accessibility of cloud storage comes at the expense of users’ privacy whose online activity can be used to profile, discriminate or persecute the user.
