About Me

I completed my PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Ropar, under the guidance of Dr. Sudarshan Iyengar. Prior to this, I completed my B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering from Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering (under VTU). My research interests lie in the domains of network science and cryptography. So far, my focus has been on improving the current techniques of performing social network analysis while accounting for the privacy of the concerned individuals. I like carnatic music and love to play the veena as a hobby.
