I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Applied Cryptography group under Prof. Sebastian Faust at TU Darmstadt. Prior to this, I obtained my Ph.D. from IIT Madras and thereafter worked as a research staff in the CCD@IITM group for a short period. During PhD, I was very fortunate to be advised by Dr. Shweta Agrawal. Even earlier, I did my Masters from IIEST Shibpur after completing Bachelors from WBUT both in Computer Science and Engineering. For a detailed CV, please contact me at any of the above email addresses.

Research Interests


My research interests are in provable security with a focus on privacy-preserving and timed cryptographic primitives, and their applications in both theory and practice. For PhD, I worked on functional encryption and in general on primitives for computing on encrypted data.
