Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Ph.D. in Computer Science, UC Berkeley, 2005

Professor Borisov's research interests lie in the area of computer security and privacy, especially as applied to large-scale distributed systems. His current focus is on anonymity: analysis of existing anonymous systems and the design of new peer-to-peer anonymous networks. In this research he takes a systems approach, with rigorous, quantitative metrics of anonymity and analysis with help from simulations. Prof. Borisov is also working on other privacy-enhancing technologies, such as techniques for privacy-preserving data aggregation, as well as research into building reliable and secure peer-to-peer networks.
