Bio

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at San Antonio, USA. Prior to that, I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Wichita State University, USA from 2012-2017 and a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Computer and Communication Sciences at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) from 2008-2011. I also served as a Summer Faculty Fellow at the US Air Force Research Lab - Information Institute in Rome, NY, USA from June-August 2015. My educational background includes a Bachelors degree in Computer Engineering from Mumbai University, India and a Doctorate degree in Computer Science from the State University of New York at Buffalo, USA. My current research is focused towards overcoming security and privacy threats in networked computer and cyber-physical systems.

Research Interests

My research interests are broadly in the area of systems and network security and privacy. Currently, I am investigating system security and user privacy threats in human-centered cyber-physical systems, such as wearable devices, wireless medical devices and smart metering systems, and in socio-technical systems, such as online social networking and crowd-sourcing services (including, participatory sensing systems).
