Dr. Paolo Gasti is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) College of Engineering and Computing Sciences. Dr. Gasti's research focuses on behavioral biometrics, privacy-preserving biometric authentication and identification, secure multi-party protocols, and network security. His recent work includes protocols for secure genomic computation, privacy-preserving document similarity, secure document caching, and distributed denial-of-service detection and prevention in future Internet architectures. He served as a member of the NDN project, which is a National Science Foundation-sponsored initiative with the goal of designing a new network architecture that might eventually replace the current Internet. His work has been sponsored by DARPA and the National Science Foundation. Gasti worked as a research scholar at University of California. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Genoa, Italy. He is a Fulbright fellow.
