Hi. I'm Kaartik Bhushan.

I am a fifth year PhD student working under the guidance of Prof. Manoj Prabhakaran at IIT Bombay. My main interests lie in the broad field of cryptography, with a side interest in complexity theory. In particular, I am interested in the problems of program obfuscation and functional encryption. I am currently hunting for a postdoc position!
