I am a Doctoral Candidate under Dr. Saraju P. Mohanty in Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of North Texas. My dissertation titled “Emerging Physical Unclonable Functions For Efficient Security in IoT” is focussed on providing robust security for the Internet of Things Environment. My research interests are Hardware Assisted Security, Security in Internet of Things (IoT), Energy-Efficient Circuits and Systems, and Application-Specific Systems Design. I am an active IEEE student member since 2012. I am an author of 13 publications which include journals and a book chapter. The poster presentation presented at IEEE MetroCon 2017 won the Best Poster Award (first prize with a cash prize of $1000).
I have been a Teaching Assistant since 2015 which has given me a great opportunity to explore the world of academics and interact with students. Being a student myself given an opportunity to teach, made me believe that learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge and knowledge makes you great.
