I have been a faculty member at the Department of Computer Science, Rutgers University, since September 2007, where I am currently an Associate Professor. I joined Rutgers soon after earning a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in August 2007. I previously earned a B.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering from IIT Bombay in May 2001. I am from Bangalore, India's IT hub and garden city.

My primary areas of research are computer security and software engineering. However, I have wide-ranging interests spanning a number of other related areas, such as cryptography, programming systems and program analysis, formal methods and verification, mobile and cyber-physical systems, and computer systems and hardware architecture. For details on my research, please consult my publications. I usually teach courses in computer security with occassional forays into teaching related courses. In Fall 2015, I will teach CS546, a graduate-level course on Computer Systems Security.
