I am pursuing my Ph.D. under the guidance of Prof Tony Quek at the WDNS Group, Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore and co-advised by Prof. Jemin Lee, at Wireless Security and Communication Lab.

undefinedI am founder of Silence Laboratories, stealth mode startup in Singapore, where we strive to bring seamless security to practice.

Currently, I am a visiting researcher at SyNRG, Coordinated Science Laboratory, UIUC, USA where I am supervised by Prof. Romit Roy Choudhury[1]

I received my Bachelor in Technology (B.Tech) in Electronics Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University), Varanasi in 2013. Afterwards, I was involved in the NETS project at iTRUST, Singapore.

I am working on techniques to enhance wireless communication using physical layer properties of the channel where I look in dimensions of security and tactility. I strive to bridge the gap between physical and upper layer communication paradigms and communities exploring them. At the end of my graduate research, I target to come up with tangible devices with embedded algorithms developed over these years while ensuring that it can be used right away.

Research interests: Cross-layer wireless security, Acoustic Security, Information Theoretic Secrecy, Physical Layer Key Generation, Tactile Internet, , GNSS SDRs, Stochastic Geometry, Cognitive Radio
