I am a third year Ph.D. student in the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Institute of Technology, working under the direction of Professor Brendan Saltaformaggio in the Cyber Forensics Innovation (CyFI) Lab. My research interests lie in cyber attack forensics, web application security, and applied statistics for large-scale security measurement. My research aims to combine advanced malware behavior modeling and large-scale measurement to explore novel techniques to prevent future attacks. In fact, my work on TARDIS (to appear in IEEE Security & Privacy 2020) has led to the identification and reporting of 20,591 attacks in real-world production websites, some of which were still yet to be detected.
Prior to joining Georgia Tech, I worked as an ASIC Verification Engineer in Infinera and then Nvidia (India), where I built test environments to verify interface modules in hardware chips by modeling the hardware profiles of its interacting components. This motivated me to join Prof. Saltaformaggio’s research group to work on binary analysis and the gamut of applications it enables in the software security research community.
