Dr. Susanne Wetzel


Dr. Wetzel is an Associate Professor and Director of the B.S. in Cybersecurity Program at the Computer Science Department of the Stevens Institute of Technology. She first joined the faculty at Stevens as Assistant Professor in 2002. She received her Diplom in Computer Science from the University in Karlsruhe (Germany) and her Ph.D degree in Computer Science from Saarland University (Germany) in1998. Subsequently, she worked at DaimlerChrysler Research (Stuttgart, Germany), Lucent Technologies Bell Laboratories (Murray Hill, USA) and RSA Laboratories (Stockholm, Sweden).  Dr. Wetzel's research interests are in cryptography and algorithmic number theory. In the field of cryptography, her research is focused on secure multi-party computation, wireless security, privacy, and biometrics, and her contributions range from analysis to protocol design. In algorithmic number theory, her research is centered on lattice theory, in particular on developing new algorithms and heuristics for lattice basis reduction. Her recent publications include works on privacy-preserving reconciliation of ordered sets and its applications; identifying transitive information leakages and analyzing their economic implications in complex networks; and parallelizing lattice basis reduction algorithms.  Her research has been funded by NSF, DHS, and DoD. Dr. Wetzel is the co-designer and director of the B.S. in Cybersecurity degree program at Stevens Institute of Technology. She also heads the Stevens' SFS program. Dr. Wetzel currently serves on the Board of CISSE and the Executive Board of DIMACS.
