About Me

I am a staff research scientist in the cryptography and security team at Visa Research.


Prior to joining Visa Research, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Applied Cryptography Group, Department of Computer Science, ETH Zurich. I was hosted by Dr. Kenny Paterson.


My research interests span all aspects of cryptography, with special focus on cryptographic foundations, database encryption, and the design and implementation of real-world cryptographic protocols.


I received my B.Tech in 2015 and PhD in 2019 from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. I was very fortunate to have Dr. Debdeep Mukhopadhyay as my PhD advisor.
