Software Engineering Intern,  June 2017 - July 2017

Pulse Secure, Bangalore

- Worked in the Pulse Cloud Secure (PCS) development team.

- Created a SaaS Platform agnostic web dashboard to summarize of users' activity within a tenant.

Technologies Used: Python, JavaScript, HTML, CSS


Barebones PaaS Implementation, Jan 2017 - Apr 2017

Cloud Computing Course Project

- Built a basic Platform as a Service on top of Openstack as the underlying Infrastructure provider.

- Enabled users to deploy NodeJS applications and multi-tenant MongoDB database on VMs that were dynamically spawned.

Technologies Used: OpenStack, NodeJS, MongoDB


Compiler Frontend for a Subset of the C Language, Feb 2017 - Apr 2017

Compiler design project where the stages from lexing through to intermediate code generation were implemented from scratch. The compiler used a hand coded recursive decent parser and syntax directed translation to generate a three address intermediate code.

Technologies Used: C++

Implementation and Defenses against Rootkits, Feb 2017 - Apr 2017

Project to study and experiment with the implementation and operation of modern Rootkits targeted at the Linux Operating System. Involved working with low level APIs and techniques available to Linux Kernel Modules and used by rootkits to mask their existence.

Technologies Used: C

Barebones PaaS Implementation, Feb 2017 - Apr 2017

Cloud Computing project to create Platform as a Service abstraction over Openstack. The final application allowed multiple users to deploy simple NodeJS applications on VMs that were dynamically created on demand. The PaaS also provided the functionality to use a multi tenant MongoDB Database as a Service.

Technologies Used: Node.js, Openstack


GitHub Repository Domain Prediction, Sept 2016 - Nov 2016

Data Analytics project to use unsupervised learning techniques on the recently release BigQuery GitHub repository data to identify repositories belonging to similar domains. The work done included an exposition of the relative effectiveness of various similarity measures for repositories to aid in the clustering.  A similar feature was later independently developed and released by GitHub.

Technologies Used: R, SQL

Data Centric Malware Detection in Android , Jan 2018 - May 2018

Final semester research project to explore a data centric approach to static and dynamic feature extraction from Android applications to aid in malware detection. The result was a comparison of the performance of malware classifiers based on the type of features and the classification algorithm used.

Technologies Used: Python, NodeJS, Android, Keras
