Prof. Sherman Chow joined the Department of Information Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in November 2012. He was a research fellow at Department of Combinatorics and Optimization, University of Waterloo, a position he commenced after receiving his Ph.D. degree from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University. He interned at NTT Research and Development (Tokyo), Microsoft Research (Redmond) and Fuji Xerox Palo Alto Laboratory, and has made research visits to U. Maryland, U. Calgary, U. Texas, HKU, MIT, and Queensland University of Technology. These visits resulted in US patent applications and also in publications at major conferences such as CCS and EUROCRYPT. He serves on the program committees of 40+ international conferences/workshops on cryptography, security, privacy, network, cloud, and PKI including ASIACRYPT 2013 and 2012, ACNS 2013 and 2012, ESORICS 2013, IEEE-CNS 2013, Financial Crypt. 2013 and WPES 2012, etc.
