I am a graduate student at the Department of Computer Science at
Georgia Institute of Technology.
I work with Professor Nick Feamster. Currently, I am collaborating with Prof. Mung Chiang and Prof. Kyle Jamieson at Princeton University.
I am affiliated with NTG and Noise lab .
My area of Research is broadly in Computer Networks, Systems and Security.
I am currently trailing my adviser at Princeton University, and have an office in C-334, Dept. of Electrical Engg. (E-quad)

I received my Bachelors (Dual degree) in Computer Science and Engineering at
the Dept. of Computer
Science & Engineering , Indian
Institute of Technology Madras.
I was advised by Professor V. Kamakoti. I have a minor in Physics.
I have worked in wireless networks, measurement in initial years of
my Ph.D. My current research is broadly related to deniability,
privacy and security on Power-line networks. The following image
might give you a glimpse of power-line and power-line signature of
various devices on it.
It is interesting to note that the noise generated by different devices can be modulated depending by its load. It gets more interesting as we can vary the load on computing devices by changing their workload and hence modulate the noise. An example modulation of the noise is shown below, with the spectrogram and decoded bits. Bit 1 corresponds to loop activity on the processor, while the bit 0 corresponds to idle processor. This is a physical layer covert channel on power-line network.
We have constructed a deniable channel on Power-line network for
two parties plugged into the same power-socket. We model the
adversary next to the transmitter/receiver on the same
power-socket. We use Software defined Radios and a powerline
coupler(front-end) for transmission and reception of covert bits on
I was the Vice President of Graduate Student Council(GSC) for the school of Computer Science at Georgia Tech (2014-2015), just before I left for Princeton.
I have been on several panels, some of them are:
I read a lot of philosophy. I relate it to physics many a times which work almost right for my view of the world. A minor in Physics has given me a fascinating approach to understanding the world using Quantum Physics to Relativity. I play musical instrument in my spare time.
