About Me

I'm a third-year PhD student in the RiseLab at UC Berkeley, advised by Raluca Ada Popa. I'm broadly interested in the security of systems and networks.

I graduated from IIT Kharagpur with a B.Tech in Computer Science. Before moving to Berkeley, I spent a couple of years at IBM Research working on software-defined networks and cloud computing. Before that, I worked as a management consultant at The Boston Consulting Group in India.
