About Me

I am a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Florida Institute of Cybersecurity Research (FICS) at the University of Florida, USA (Advisor: Prof. Mark Tehranipoor). I received my Ph.D from the Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2020 from IIIT-Delhi, India. Before joining FICS, I was a Scientist at Society for Electronic Transactions and Security (SETS), Chennai, India (June 2008 to November 2020) and Research Associate at SyLLab, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore (Jan 2013 to July 2013). In my 13 years of service, I have led several scientific and development projects sponsored by government and public sectors in the field of hardware security. A large part of my research works has been published in several peer-reviewed journals and conferences. For more information, please refer to my publication and research projects pages.
