About Me

I am a Research Scientist with the Security Group at Google.

I graduated with a PhD from the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University. I am broadly interested in cryptography, security, and theoretical computer science. My PhD advisor was Prof. Dan Boneh.

My PhD research focused on modeling and building secure deterministic and searchable encryption schemes. I also worked on building encryption and signature schemes from lattice-based cryptography, among other topics in cryptography.

I spent the summer of 2012 at Microsoft Research (Silicon Valley) working with Gil Segev and Ilya Mironov. I am spending the summer of 2013 with Dirk Balfanz and the security engineering team at Google.

I graduated from the Computer Science and Engineering Department at IIT Madras with a Bachelors of Technology in Computer Science with a minor in Physics in July 2009.
