About Me

"There is always a workaround". That's an ideology I strongly believe in. It's not just something to do with generic hacking, but a reminder that a problem doesn't just have a solution, but a smart solution. I try to find such smart and witty solutions for all puzzles of my life.

I am a passionate student, practician and an enthusiast of Cyber Security with a BE (Hons.) in Computer Science. I currently pursue an MS in Cyber Security from Georgia Tech. Such a background allows me to relate day to day functioning of every aspect of life to the intricacies of a computer system. With a fortunate touch of mild laziness and witty impulsiveness, I have a unique perspective on tricky problems. Using these skills, I learn more about Cyber Security, about identifying loopholes and thinking about secure designs for different systems.

Currently, I spend my days studying courses for my Masters degree, being involved in projects for courses like Applied Cryptography, Network Security and Secure Computer Systems. Playing CTFs, playing drums and clicking photographs are three constructive hobbies I pursue. I aim to be a successful Cyber Security Practician in the industry and make a positive contribution to the Cybersec community that has helped me get to where I am today.
