Ivan Pustogarov is a Ph.D. student at the LACS (Laboratory of Algorithms, Cryptology and Security) of the University of Luxembourg under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Alex Biryukov since July 2011. He received his M.Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics and Informatics from Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, Russia in 2009. Ivan's main research interests include Anonymity and Privacy, and Symmetric-key Cryptography. Before joining LACS Ivan worked as a researcher at IITP RAS focusing on performance analysis and improvement of wireless networks (having contributions to IEEE 802.11s and IEEE 802.11aa amendments). Some of his previous publications can be found here.
