About me

I am a Master’s student in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. My supervisor is Ian Goldberg. I am a member of the Cryptography, Security, and Privacy (CrySP) lab and the Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research.

My research interest is in developing privacy enhanced technology for applications having broad social impact. For my Master's thesis, I have worked on a recommender scheme with improved assurances of user privacy. Using threshold cryptography based on Shamir's secret sharing, this scheme is independent of a trusted third party and is resilient against collusion by malicious servers. I also have secondary research interests in topics such as multiagent systems, big data applications, and private information retrieval.

I am currently looking for industry positions, where I can work on applying privacy to big data applications or search engines, multiagent systems, trust modelling, security education. If you'd like to talk to me about this, please get in touch! :)

You can find my resume here.

I have done my Bachelor’s Of Engineering in Information Technology from University of Pune, India graduating in July 2012. From September 2012 to August 2015, I was a working as a senior subject matter expert at Amdocs, Pune, India where I worked on creating and deploying weblogic environments that hosted AT&T's billing product, "Enabler".

I am a classically trained dancer and have a Bachelor's degree in the Indian classical dance form, Bharatnatyam from Akhil Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya Mandal, Mumbai, India. Previously, I have been part of the production "Sat", where we drew parallels (pun intended!) between Bharatnatyam and Mathematics. Currently, I am planning a project to depict various privacy and security vulnerabilities through Bharatnatyam.
