Sanjam Garg is a Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellow at IBM Research T.J. Watson. His research interests are in cryptography and security, and more broadly in theoretical computer science. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2013 and his undergraduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in 2008. Sanjam's Ph.D. thesis provides the first candidate constructions of multilinear maps that have found extensive applications in cryptography, most notably to software obfuscation. He has published several papers in top cryptography and security conferences and is the recipient of various honors such as the Outstanding Graduating Ph.D. Student award at UCLA and the best paper award at EUROCRYPT 2013.
