I am a Ph.D. student in Brain, Mind, and Computer Science (BMCS) doctoral program at the University of Padova, Italy, with a fellowship for international students funded by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Padova e Rovigo (CaRiPaRo). Here, I am a member of the Security and PRIvacy Through Zeal (SPRITZ) research group. Under the supervision of Prof. Mauro Conti, I am working on the security and privacy aspects of the blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, and Software Defined Network (SDN). Prior to pursuing Ph.D., I've earned Master of Technology (M.Tech.) degree in Computer Science from MNIT Jaipur, India and Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree in Information Technology from RTU Kota, India.
