I am a first-year CS PhD student in Internet Analytics Group at the IMDEA Networks Institute and University Carlos III de Madrid, Madrid, Spain advised by Dr  Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez. I empirically measure and analysis the privacy and security risks of Mobile and Networked systems with a focus on data use. Prior to joining IMDEA, I was a Remote Research Intern at Rochester Institute of Technology, the USA and also a Research Associate Intern at the IIJ Innovation Institute (IIJ-II). My work was focused on Email and DNS Security extensions, and Process-based Isolation with Linux Unikernels.

I graduated from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in 2020, with a major in Computer Science. I was selected twice as a Google Summer of Code student, with KDE (2017) and GNU Linux (2018). Parallel to my second GSoC, I spend my summer at Ben Gurion University, Israel as a summer exchange student studying the use of Machine Learning with cybersecurity and business intelligence.

I have published my research in international peer-reviewed conferences such as USENIX Security’20.
