I am a second year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at NC State University and a part of the WSPR lab. I am advised by Dr. Anupam Das.

My research interest lies in trust and safety in emerging technologies. I am currently exploring usable security, privacy and safety research for virtual reality.

Prior to my Ph.D., I was part of the Software Architecture team at Qualcomm, India. I graduated with a B.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NIT Trichy) in 2019.

I’m actively looking for research internships for Summer 2025. Link to my CV.
