Brent Waters, Ph.D.- Dr. Brent Waters, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin, is laying the foundation for managing encrypted computer data in cloud services, where data is stored at third-party locations outside of the owner's control. Brent's research is helping build an entirely different vision for the encryption of sensitive data, called functional encryption. Brent's received his Ph.D. in computer science from Princeton University in 2004. From 2004-2005, he was a post-doctoral at Stanford University then worked at SRI as a computer scientist in the Principled Systems group. In 2008 he joined the faculty at The University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science. He is a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Fellow, a Sloan Fellow and recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award.

When Sahai and Brent Waters, a computer scientist at the University of Texas, Austin, described a way to use IO in 2013, it was largely a matter of belief that this style of obfuscation would protect the secrets inside a program.

A year later, in April 2014, Waters, Bishop and Craig Gentry, a research scientist at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., released a pair of papers boiling the problem of IO down to a set of simple assumptions related to a type of mathematical object called multilinear maps. (Sahai was a co-author on one of the papers.) "We said if the attacker breaks [IO] in any way, he must be solving one of these problems," Bishop said.

The center, which is devoted to obfuscation research, was founded in 2014 and is funded by a $5 million grant from the National Science Foundation, with Waters and Bishop as co-principal investigators.
