Junior Research Fellow, IAI – TCG CREST

Research Interest

My research interest lies in Symmetric Key Cryptography. To be precise, I am currently trying to explore Leakage-Resilient Primitives. Currently, we are trying to work on the analysis of various cryptographic schemes in the presence of information leakage due to the physical constraints of some underlying tools. I am also interested in Quantum Computing and Quantum Symmetric Key Cryptography. My Ph.D advisor is Dr. Nilanjan Datta, Assistant Professor at TCG CREST(IAI).


I have done a Master of Science(M.Sc) in Pure Mathematics from University of Calcutta after my graduation in Mathematics from the same university. I have completed a Master of Technology(M.Tech) in Cryptology and Security from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. I worked under Dr. Rishiraj Bhattacharyya at NISER, Bhubaneswar as a Junior Research Fellow (Project Based) before joining TCG CREST(IAI).

I love Books, Movies, Volleyball, Football, Cricket, etc. Currently, my love interest is travelling. These are subject to change.
