Hi, I am Guru.

I am a research engineer at HP Labs in Bristol. I did my PhD in computer science from the University of Birmingham where I was supervised by Prof. Mark Ryan.

I have been fortunate to work with Prof. Michael Clarkson at the George Washinton University as a research assistant from Dec '12 to April '13. I also enjoyed working with Liqun Chen at the Hewlett Packard Labs, Bristol and Prof. Peter Ryan at the University of Luxembourg.

Before starting my PhD I did an M.Sc in Computer security from the Univeristy of Birmingham.

Research Interests

Internet of Things (IoT)

At present I am quite interested in analysing and developing secure IoT protocols.

Internet Voting

I am also interested in investigating verifiability, privacy, and usability properties in internet voting systems.

Privacy in Social networks

I like to find techniques using which private information in social networks like Facebook can be extracted and how to prevent that.
