Jean Pierre Hubaux



Jean-Pierre Hubaux is a full professor at EPFL and head of the Laboratory for Data Security. Through his research, he contributes to laying the foundations and developing the tools for protecting privacy in today’s hyper-connected world. Hubaux’s research is currently dedicated to issues of data sharing and protection in personalized healthcare. Formerly, he worked on privacy and security in mobile and pervasive networks, and on inter-personal privacy problems. His work in data protection in personalized healthcare led to the development of a system able to train and perform inference with neural networks on decentralized data-sets while preserving the privacy of the data and protecting the model. He has also led efforts to show that combining secure multi-party computation and homomorphic encryption makes partial results of federated learning anonymous in accordance to GDPR. Hubaux is the founder and academic director of the Center for Digital Trust (C4DT). He leads the  Data Protection in Personalized Health (DPPH) project funded by the ETH Council and is a co-chair of the Data Security Work Stream of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH). He is a Fellow of both IEEE (2008) and ACM (2010). He is among the most cited researchers in privacy protection and in information security.
