I am a Principal Researcher in Information Security at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. In my role as a researcher and technical leader, I am driving innovation in the use for blockchain technology to challenging security problems and use cases, such as identity and IoT security. Over the years, I have addressed important research and technical problems in multiple areas of computer security, including IoT, mobile and web security. My work methodology particularly involves building real systems and tools to address security challenges. I am broadly interested in learning about how secure systems and networks can be effectively designed and deployed.
Previously, I received my PhD from the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. I was affiliated with Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC). I completed my Master's degree in the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia and Bachelor's degree in Computer Science in the Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee, India.
