I am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science and Engineering department at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. My research interests are in Cryptography and Information theory. Previously, I have been an INSPIRE Assistant Professor at IIT Delhi, prior to which I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Los Angeles with Professor Amit Sahai. I earned my Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin. During my Ph.D., I was extremely fortunate to be guided by Professor Dan Boneh in Cryptography (during an extended visit to Stanford University) and Professor Sriram Vishwanath in Information Theory.
