Mukul Kulkarni

Postdoctoral Research Associate


Dr. Mukul R. Kulkarni received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Maryland, College Park (2019), after completing his M.Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay (2014), and his B.E. from the University of Pune (2009). His research is focused on modeling capabilities of adversarial entities and constructing cryptographic algorithms which can be mathematically proven to be secure in specific threat models.  He is currently working on designing efficient algorithms supporting computation on encrypted data, which can be used by applications to provide provable security and privacy guarantees.

Mukul was a visiting graduate student at Simons Institute at UC Berkeley in summer program on cryptography (2015). He was also an integral member of the Scilab team for FOSSEE project at IIT Bombay, which aims to improve the quality of instruction and learning in India. In addition to his research, he has served on various professional committees as an external reviewer and on student committees as a board member as well as in leadership roles.
