Hi! I’m Jonathan Takeshita (竹下ジョナサン賢), and I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The University of Notre Dame du Lac. I am advised by Dr. Taeho Jung, and am a member of the Data, Security, and Privacy Lab. My graduate studies are generously supported by the Jack and Mary Ann Remick Fellowship in Engineering.

For Summer 2022, I am at Meta as a Research Engineer Intern on the Statistics & Privacy team.

I was at Google as a Software Engineering Intern on the Anonymization team for Summer 2021. At Google, I worked on research and development for homomorphic encryption. (Project details are confidential.)

I hold a B.S.E. in Computer Science from The University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and a B.A. in Engineering Physics and Music from Albion College. I have held various positions in research, development, and teaching at those institutions as well as at Epic, Washington University in St. Louis, and Schoolcraft College.

My research spans a wide range of topics in security and privacy, including work in fully homomorphic encryption, secure multi-party computation, secure deduplication, and compute-enabled RAM.

Besides research, I enjoy classical piano, C/C++ programming, Linux gaming, and Michigan football. I also have had the honor of serving as a Vice-President of Notre Dame’s Graduate Student Government for the 2020-2021 term.
