I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi. My research interests include anatomizing the communication protocols employed in cyber-physical systems for security and privacy vulnerabilities, and then mitigating them with innovative defense mechanisms.

In the past, I received my B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering at IIT Delhi. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering under the guidance of Prof. Jerry Park at Virginia Tech. Before returning back to IIT Delhi, I also worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University under the supervision of Prof. Dongyan Xu.
