I am a second-year Masters in Information Management Systems (MIMS) Program at the School of Information at UC Berkeley. I obtained my Bachelors Degree in Computer Science Engineering from the University of Pune, India in 2018. 

I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with esteemed faculty like Prof. Dawn Song and Prof. Hany Farid. In addition, I have had fruitful collaborations with Dr. Min Du and Dr. Sadia Afroz. I am also affiliated with the Center for Long Term Cybersecurity advised by Prof. Steve Weber where I work with non-profits to help them improve their security landscape.
