Prabhanjan Ananth, a Ph.D. candidate in computer science at the University of California, Los Angeles, received B.Eng and M.S. degrees from R. V. College of Engineering and the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India, respectively. His research focuses on cryptographic program obfuscation. He has published at top venues including CRYPTO, TCC and ACM CCS. Among his recent results (joint with Jain) is a transformation that builds indistinguishability obfuscation from compact functional encryption. Another result (joint with Jain and Sahai) achieves the first construction of indistinguishability obfuscation with constant multiplicative size overhead.
