About Me

I am working as Research Associate with research interest as to apply and optimize machine learning algorithms on demand response optimization and cyber security of critical infrastructure while pursuing PhD at Indian Institute of Information technology Allahabad, India. He has 4 years of research experience in the C3i HUB IIT Kanpur sponsored project(Risk Averse Resilience Framework for Critical Infrastructure Security), and in the Indo-Norway Project(CPSEC) in the field of “Machine Learning Approach for Cyber Security”- (under joint collaboration of IIT Kanpur, IIIT Allahabad and Norwegian University of Science & Technology, Gjovik-Norway). He received his graduation in Mathematics(BHU, India) and post graduation in Computer Application(MNNIT Allahabad, India) and in Software Systems(BITS Pilani, India). After post graduation, he worked 9 years for multinationals like Tata Consultancy Services(India) and Ciena India Pvt. Ltd. (Indian and Canada) as a senior Java developer in the field of Telecommunications, Layer zero control plane for optical fiber and Banking/Finance.
