About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Delft Blockchain Lab (DBL) of TU Delft, Netherlands. Here, I am working on the security and privacy aspects of the blockchain technology under the supervision of Prof. Zekeriya Erkin and Prof. Stefanie Roos. I received my PhD degree in Brain, Mind, and Computer Science (advisor: Prof. Mauro Conti) from University of Padua, Italy, in 2020. Prior to pursuing PhD, I received MTech degree (advisor: Prof. Manoj Singh Gaur) in Computer Engineering from MNIT Jaipur, India and BTech degree in Information Technology from RTU Kota, India. I have worked in different mainstream areas of research, including distributed ledger technology (blockchain and cryptocurrency), networking (SDN and ICN), and AI (GAN-based password cracking). However, the main theme of my research has always been security and privacy.
