I am a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research, India where I work on projects combining distributed systems and security. I work closely with Dr. Satya Lokam, Dr. Muthian Sivathanu, Dr. Nishanth Chandran and Dr. Divya Gupta on building lightweight blockchain protocols.
Before this, I had a short stint in the industry working at Tower Research Capital managing their build tools and at Google in their Enterprise team. Even before that, I had a lot of fun building and breaking systems by participating in hackathons and CTFs.
- Systems - distributed systems, web-scale systems.
- Security and Privacy - attacking binaries and services for fun and profit, verifiable computation.
I believe in “a sprinkle of this, and a dash of that” and am happiest working on something which combines systems with security.
