About me: I have been on the faculty at Rutgers since September 2007, having joined soon after earning a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I previously earned a B.Tech. in Computer Science and 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, but I am also interested in research in a variety of other areas, such as program analysis and programming language design, mobile systems, and virtual machine technology. I have two main ongoing projects, Self-service Cloud Computing, which aims to improve client security and control on the cloud, [TIFS'13, CCS'12, CCSW'12], and the MOSFET project, which is on security and software engineering tools for mobile devices [ICSE'13, SPSM'12, MobiSys'11].
