Welcome to the homepage of Chris Brzuska. I am a junior professor at Hamburg University of Technology. I am grateful to NXP Semiconductors for the continous support and our collaboration. My research area is cryptography and its connections to related areas such as IT security, verification and complexity theory. Until September 2015, I was post-doc at Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK. Until September 2014, I was a post-doc at Tel-Aviv University working with Benny Applebaum and Iftach Haitner. Until October 2012, I was a PhD student of Marc Fischlin at TU Darmstadt. During my PhD, I also visited Russell Impagliazzo at IAS from October 2011 to March 2012. Before, I studied mathematics in Duisburg-Essen, Bordeaux and Darmstadt with the key aspects cryptography, logic and lattice theory.
