I am a Ph.D. student with the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I’m advised by Chris Kanich, and my research focuses on the areas of Security and Privacy, Algorithmic Fairness, and Computational Social Science.

In the past, I worked at Precog Research Lab as a Research Associate, where I was advised by Ponnurangam Kumaraguru “PK” and Arun Balaji Buduru. My industrial experience includes working as a Full Stack Developer at an Amazon Pay-acquired startup and a software developer intern at MobiKwik. I received my undergraduate degree from IIIT-Delhi in Computer Science.
