Mahmood Sharif



I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the VMware Research Group and an adjunct research fellow in the Institute for Software Research and the CyLab Security and Privacy Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. My research interests are in the areas of computer security and privacy, machine learning, and human factors.

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, where I was a member of CyLab and CUPS. I received my B.Sc. (via the Etgar/“Challenge" program) and M.Sc. (summa cum laude) degrees in Computer Science from the University of Haifa.

I’ll be joining the School of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University as a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Fall 2021. If you’re a student interested in working with me, please do reach out.
