Welcome to the homepage of Chris Brzuska. I am a faculty member of the departments computer science as well as mathematics and systems analysis at Aalto University in Finland. My research area is cryptography and its connections to related areas such as IT security, verification and complexity theory.


The best way to contact me is usually via eMail chris dot brzuska at aalto dot fi and if you like, you can also encrypt your eMail using my PGP public key. You can also try to call me, but usually, the attempt to call me is less likely to be successful, since I am strictly offline during research activity, teaching interactions and other personal interactions.
