Hello, welcome to my home page. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Information Technology Guwahati. I have completed my Phd from Monash University (Clayton campus), Melbourne, Australia and my masters from Indian Institute of Technology Madras. Prior to my PhD, I was working as a software engineer at Oracle Corporations and as a Tech lead in a network security start-up. My resume can be downloaded here.

Research Interests:

I am interested in designing efficient algorithms for hard problems. My other interests include Graph Theory, Complexity Theory, Combinatorics, Matroids and cyber security.

Sponsored Research Project:

Title: Design of training course-ware and feasibility study of zero trust approach under InstaSafe framework, PI: Srinibas Swain. Industry project for InstaSafe (http://www.instasafe.com/), 2021-2022.
