Lefteris Kokoris Kogias

Research Scientist

I joined Novi in June 2020. I am interested in increasing the digital trust of online information and processes, especially those that impact the physical world. I am working on building a scalable and robust infrastructure for the future decentralized internet focusing on scalable blockchain systems, bias-resistant decentralized randomness generation, secure software update dispersion and novel applications of threshold cryptography and distributed consensus. Prior to Novi, I received my PhD from EPFL working with Prof. Bryan Ford on scalable and confidential blockchains.
