Alberto Sonnino, PhD

Speaker

I am a Research Scientist at Mysten Labs, based in London. I previously worked at Facebook (now called Meta) in the blockchain and cryptography team. Before joining Facebook, I was a co-founder and researcher at chainspace.io which built a scalable smart contract platform. My research interests are in systems security and privacy engineering. My main areas of research include distributed systems, blockchains, and privacy enhancing technologies. I have a special interest in cryptography, and I particularly enjoy designing, implementing and evaluating high-performance distributed systems.
