Krzysztof "Chris" Kapulkin (born 15 August 1986) is a Polish-Canadian mathematician, specializing in homotopy type theory, category theory, and cryptography. Since July 2017, he has been an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Western Ontario.[1]


Kapulkin completed his PhD at the University of Pittsburgh in 2014. For his dissertation Joyal's Conjecture in Homotopy Type Theory, relating dependent type theory to locally cartesian closed quasicategories, he received the Thomas C. Hales Distinguished Research Award.[2]

In 2012-13, Kapulkin was a visiting student at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, participating in the Special Year on Univalent Foundations.[3] In 2017, he became an assistant professor in mathematics at the University of Western Ontario.[1]


Kapulkin is known for his work in the areas of homotopy type theory (in particular, semantics of type theory in higher categories and formal verification of mathematics in the univalent foundations) and cryptography. He is one of the authors of the CEK protocol for secure integer comparison.[4]
