About Me

I'm pursuing M.Tech(Research) program at CSA, IISc in Cryptography under the guidance of Dr.Arpita Patra. I've completed my B.E in Computer Science and Engineering from BVBCET, Hubli. I'm interested in Secure Multi-Party Computation (MPC), particularly in a fascinating line of research called MPC with small number of parties which has wide practical applications. My research interests also include Circuit Garbling and Distributed Computing. I'm a part of the implementation team of our lab where we work on the realization of the practical aspects of our research.
Besides research, I'm an amateur artist. I spend most of my free time learning new techniques (professional and DIY) of art and craft. Also, travelling is one of my favourite things. I love watchinng movies, exploring new music and sometimes writing as well.
