About

Hello, welcome to my home page. I am Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Information Technology, Guwahati. My current research focus is on Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, Deep Learning, Brain Computer Interface and Secure Healthcare System, etc. I completed PhD from IIT Kharagpur in 2016. The area in which I did my PhD was Information Security. More Specifically, it was on various security issues in RFID technology based Object Identification. Prior to my PhD, I completed M. Tect in CSE with specialization as Information Security from NIT Rourkela. During my M. Tech. at NIT Rourkela, I was working on the area of Key pre distribution for Wireless Sensor Network. Apart form my professional activities, I like to indulge myself in any sports like cricket, football, etc.
