Rachit Garg is a first-year Ph.D. student at The University of Texas at Austin, where Brent Waters advises him. His research focuses on the theory and practice of computing on encrypted data. Before coming to UT, he did his bachelor's and masters from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras where he was fortunate to be guided by Shweta Agrawal.
Rachit is interested in post-quantum cryptography and coming up with a deployable solution to the problem of code obfuscation. He hopes to identify the right mix of ingredients that do not suffer from the low efficiency of the (proposed) theoretical primitives and can still be deployed at a large scale.
