Matheus Venturyne Xavier Ferreira is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Computer Science at Harvard John A. Paulson School Of Engineering And Applied Sciences. He received his B.S. in Computer Engineering (2016) from Federal University of Itajubá, and Ph.D. (2021) in Computer Science from Princeton University supervised by S. Matthew Weinberg. He was a Brazil Science without Borders (2014) at UC, San Diego, and a LATinE Fellow (2020) at Purdue University, College of Engineering.
His research focuses on designing secure and fair systems by taking into account that, in many instances, real-world adversaries are economically motivated. His research has combined cryptography and game theory insights to guide the design of fair Internet auctions and energy-efficient blockchains.
