I am a third year PhD student in the Computer Science department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign advised by Manoj Prabhakaran. I am primarily interested in the theory of Cryptography. I obtained my B.Tech and MS in Computer Science and Engineering from IIIT-Hyderabad, India, under the guidance of Kannan Srinathan.

I spent the summer of 2012 as an intern in the Cryptography and Complexity group at Microsoft Research, India, working with Vipul Goyal. In the past, I have interned at Amazon and Synovel at their Hyderabad, India office.
