Hilder Vítor Lima Pereira

I did my undergraduate course in Computer Science at University of São Paulo and then I moved to University of Campinas, where I obtained a MSc degree in Computer Science, working with cryptography under the supervision of professor Diego de Freitas Aranha.

I am now doing my PhD in University of Luxembourg and my advisor is professor Jean-Sébastien Coron.

My main research interests are Homomorphic Encryption, Multilinear Maps, and Indistinguishability Obfuscation.
