I am currently a first year PhD student at the University of Michigan Computer Science and Engineering department, where I am advised by Prof. Roya Ensafi. My research focuses broadly on Computer Security and Privacy. I am interested in working with problems that measure availability and reliability across the Internet.
I graduated from VIT University, India in 2017 as a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering. I also worked as a technical consultant for business applications in Microsoft India.
As a research intern at University of Maryland, I worked with Prof. Neil Spring on measuring last-mile residential Internet outages in areas affected by severe weather conditions. The Thunderping tool uses several vantage points to actively prove residential IP addresses. The real-time website shows Internet outages as they occur. The tool helped visualize heavy outages during Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
