Dr. Joshua Baron joined DARPA’s Information Innovation Office (I2O) as a program manager in August 2017. His research interests focus on cryptography, particularly secure computation, as well as novel decision-making analytics for cyberspace operations and cybersecurity.
Prior to his position at DARPA, Baron was at RAND Corporation, where he conducted policy analysis for the Department of Defense, mostly the U.S. Air Force and Joint Staff. Baron’s research investigated methods and tools to enable the development of enhanced decision-making capabilities for cyberspace operations. He also examined policy implications of virtual currencies as well as various cryptographic technologies. Before joining RAND, Baron worked for HRL Laboratories, conducting research on secure multiparty computation.
Baron holds Doctorate of Philosophy and Master of Arts degrees in mathematics from the University of California, Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley. Baron’s doctoral work focused on secure multiparty computation. Baron is a co-inventor on eight patents and co-author of nine journal and conference publications, virtually all relating to cryptography.
