Implementations of the algorithms proposed in my thesis and other related programs can be found here.

I did my Bachelor of Engineering in Information Technology from Jadavpur University during 2001-05. I did my Master of Technology in Computer Science from Indian Statistical Institute during 2007-09.

Between 2005-07, I have worked in the software industry for two years - on message switching equipment for GSM mobile networks and on a state-of-the-art network security software. Recently, I have provided consultancy services for secure full-stack web design, development and maintenance.
