To know more about my research, you can see the full list of my research papers through my DBLP. Email me if you need a copy of any of my papers.
Teaching at IIIT Bangalore:
I was very fortunate to be taught by some of the best teachers in theoretical computer science at IIT Madras, such as Prof. Kamala Krithivasan (Discrete Maths and Automata Theory), Prof. C. Pandu Rangan (Algorithms and Cryptography) and Prof. S. A. Choudum (Graph Theory). Their teaching always motivated me to become a teacher and I am fortunate to teach the following courses over the past several years at IIIT Bangalore (the corresponding pages are outdated, but they do have some relevant information).
Teaching for NPTEL:
National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) is a wonderful project funded by the Govt. of India, which offers free online courses in various disciplines of science and engineering. I am very fortunate to be associated with the following NPTEL courses.
I am very excited and glad about the release of my book on secure multi-party computation, jointly authored with my colleague Arpita Patra. We have covered only semi-honest/passive security and there was so much to cover in that topic itself. We made our level best to make the book accessible to a general audience. The book can be purchased using this link. A set of free online video lectures, based on the contents of the book is also available at this link.
In the past, I was very fortunate to work with the following iM.Tech and M.Tech students, who did their thesis under me and who are now pursuing PhD/research careers at various top universities/research groups.
Naganad Yadati (M.Tech 2016, now postdoc at National University of Singapore)
Yashvanth Kondi (iM.Tech 2017, now a postdoc at Aarhus University)
Laasya Bangalore (iM.Tech 2018, now PhD student at Georgetown University)
Gayathri Garimella (iM.Tech 2018, now PhD student at Oregon State University)
Rishabh Bhadauria (iM.Tech 2018, now PhD student at Bar-Ilan University)
Rahul Rachuri (i.M.Tech 2019, now PhD student at Aarhus University)
Aditya Hegde (i.M.Tech 2020, now PhD student at John Hopkins University)
Nikhil Pappu (i.M.Tech 2020, now PhD student at Portland State University)
Anirudh Chanramouli (i.M.Tech 2022, now PhD student at Bar-Ilan University)
Ananya Appan (i.M.Tech 2022, will be joining as a PhD student at UIUC)
I was born and brought up in the wonderful city of Jabalpur, also known as Sanskardharni. I was briefly an assistant professor at the department of computer science and engineering, Jadavpur university, before joining IIIT Bangalore.
I am very fortunate to have a better half, who is a renowned cryptographer and a wonderful photographer. I am a fitness freak person. Earlier I used to go to gym regularly, but now I have switched to natural forms of exercises like yoga, jogging and cycling. Earlier I was very active on Facebook.
