University of Surrey

I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science, University of Surrey. I am also a research fellow in the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Greenwich.

I received BTech. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Institute of Technical Education and Research, India, in 2013 and M.Sc. degree in Human-Computer Interaction and Design from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden and Aalto University, Finland in 2018. My research interest includes the application of game theory to support decision-making in cyber security. I have worked, on a part-time basis, for three European funded projects, H2020 CUREX, H202O SPEAR and Marie Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) SECONDO. I have also been seconded through SECONDO project to work with cyber-insurance brokers CROMAR.
