My research interests include investigating issues with security, usability and interactions for devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), and designing mechanisms to overcome them. You can find more information here.
I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada, where I worked on a context-dependent adaptive mechanism for security; particularly, key generation and authentication. I also hold a Bachelor’s degree (B.E) in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum, India, and a Master’s degree (M.Tech) in Information Systems and Management from the University of Mysore, Mysore, India.
I am a proponent of lifelong learning and consider every interaction the source of a life lesson. My interest in teaching stems from this belief, and from the belief that learning (and teaching) has to be beyond the bounds of a classroom and not merely motivated by academic grades. Teaching is also a great learning opportunity, because this action helps us learn (and understand) a bit more about the topic and ourselves.
