About meI am a student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, humbly pursuing my PhD with Professor Matthew Caesar.
This summer I was a research intern at Microsoft Research Redmond where I was working with Himanshu Raj and Paul England on enhancing security in the Azure infrastucture.
Prior to UIUC, I completed my undergraduate degree at the Lahore University of Management Sciences in 2011 and was advised by Dr Muhammad Fareed Zaffar and Dr Ashish Gehani.
My research interests fall in the area of Operating Systems, Networks, Security and Distributed Algorithms. Currently I'm exploring the problem of brute force attacks and information leakage in data center networks.
On a different plane I am also looking at privacy in Cloud Computing environments. My aim is to hide program behavior from an untrusted operating system or a third-party hypervisor by employing the use of trusted hardware combined with software obfuscation techniques.
Other ActivitiesOutside of my research, I like to play basketball and volleyball and occasionaly go for swimming.
