Mahmood Sharif

Senior Lecturer


I’m a Senior Lecturer (≈ Assistant Professor) in the School of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University, where I lead the PLUS research group. My research interests are in the areas of computer security and privacy, machine learning, and human factors.

Prior to joining Tel Aviv University, I spent roughly two years with VMware’s and NortonLifeLock’s research groups. 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.

If you’re interested in joining our group, please do reach out.
