I am a second year PhD student in the Computer Science department at Cornell University, working with Prof. Thomas Ristenpart. I graduated with a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, BHU, India. I received my master's in Computer Sciences from the Purdue University. During my master's, I worked as a research assistant with Prof. Mikhail Atallah.
I am interested in security and privacy of the ever-changing digital world.
Recently, I have been exploring how deep learning techniques can be used to develop powerful password cracking attacks and building Personalized Password Strength Meters(PPSM) that can prevent these attacks. This work was accepted in IEEE Security and Privacy 2018.
I TA’d the following grad course:
I am trained in an Indian Classical Dance called Kathak and an Indian folk dance form called Rabindra Nitrya.
During my master's, I attended the basic 101 class for Salsa Dance.
