About

I was a doctoral student at Columbia University, dabbling in systems security research across two labs, CASTL and IDS.

I have had the immense fortune of being advised by by Prof. Simha Sethumadhavan and Prof. Salvatore Stolfo.

Apart from doing research, I partake in marathons, wing chun, scuba diving and CTFs.

 

Research

I am broadly interested in all aspects of systems and software security. My research examines both attack and defensive techniques at the hardware-software interfaces of commodity systems.

I am of the view that security as a full-system property can be improved by examining and leveraging the interworking of hardware and software.

11 Oct 2017 - Thoughts on Offensive Security Research
. research .

Why research and demonstrate attacks? Professor Simha Sethumadhavan and I pen down some thoughts on the importance of attack research through examples. We will also lay out a framework for thinking about attack research.
