About me

Hello! I'm a researcher with a focus on enhancing privacy and security in cyber-physical systems. I received my B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India, in 2015. Following that, I worked as a Senior Engineer at Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions, India, developing sensor signal processing applications for automotive vehicle safety.

In 2017, I embarked on my doctoral journey at the Division of Information Science and Engineering, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, under the guidance of Prof. Tobias Oechtering and Prof. Daniel Månsson. My research here has focused on safeguarding user privacy in smart grids by leveraging energy storage systems. On May 24th, 2023, I successfully defended my thesis titled "Towards Realistic Smart Meter Privacy against Bayesian Inference".  Here, I proposed innovative privacy control strategies to address various Bayesian adversarial models, providing practical solutions to manage adversarial inference in cyber-physical systems.

Currently, I am working at RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden), where my efforts are dedicated to enhancing the safety, security, and reliability of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles. I am truly passionate about my work and remain committed to making contributions to the field of statistical signal processing, cyber security, and privacy in cyber-physical systems.
