Tom Shrimpton is an associate professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) at the University of Florida. His research is in cryptography, with an emphasis on the needs of real-world cryptographic practice. Much of his work has focused upon the theory and practice of hash functions, authenticated encryption schemes, and other symmetric-key primitives. Recently, he has worked more broadly in applied cryptography and privacy.

He earned a Ph.D. in 2004 from the University of California (Davis) under Phillip Rogaway.

In 2009, Professor Shrimpton was the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award. In 2014, he was awarded one of the ten New Digital Age gifts from Eric Schmidt.
