About me

I am a doctoral student at the Chair for Software Engineering. I received my Master of Science degree in computer science from TU München in Nov. 2014, with a major in artificial intelligence and minor in software engineering. Before that, I was a systems software engineer with Hewlett-Packard Research and Development in Bangalore, India from 2011 to 2012. Before that, I received my Bachelor of Engineering degree in computer science from Manipal University, India.

Research Interests

My current areas of research are symbolic execution and fuzzing in the context of large-scale software. I focus on smart compositional techniques for finding security and systems vulnerabilities in software and severity assessment for developer testing.

I'm also interested in machine learning, time series networks and data mining in software repositories.
