Bio

I am a final year student of B. Tech Information Technology at MAIT, an institute affiliated to GGSIPU, a state university of Delhi, India. Currently, I am working as a Research Assistant at the Human Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) of University of Maryland, College Park and as an undergraduate researcher with the PreCog Research Group at IIIT Delhi.

My research work at UMD focuses on understanding whether users make rational security decisions and improving the quality of security advice via qualitative, quantitative, and data science projects. At PreCog, I'm working on detecting spam on Online Social Networks in collaboration with Georgia Tech, Pindrop Security and Microsoft Research.

I am also an active member of an ongoing project with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, in collaboration with IIIT-Bangalore.
