 Presently, I am an associate professor in the department EECS at IIT Bhilai . Earlier, I used to be an assistant professor of CSE at IIT Gandhinagar (2014-17). I obtained my BE, MTech and PhD degrees from Jadavpur University (1994 - 98), Indian Statistical Institute (1999 - 01) and KU Leuven (2001 - 06), respectively. I spent several years as a postdoctoral (or guest) researcher at KU Leuven (2006 - 08), NIST, USA (2008 - 12) and University of Waterloo (2012 - 14).

Since 2001, my research has always centered on cryptography and related areas.


Here is my CV (last updated Jan. 13, 2018.)

Research interests

(Present) Cryptographic modes and multiparty protocols; Blockchain and Cryptocurrency; Anonymity and Privacy; Network Security. (Earlier) Design and analysis of cryptographic primitives (e.g. stream cipher, hash function, etc.). 

 In the coming winter semester (2018-19-W) I will be teaching CS554: Blockchains and Cryptocurrencies.
