Hi, I’m Aniketh Girish

I am a first year CS PhD student in Internet Analytics group at the IMDEA Networks Institute and University Carlos III de Madrid, Madrid, Spain advised by Dr. Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez. I emperically measure and analysis the privacy and security risks of Mobile and Networked systems with a focus on data use.

Prior to joining IMDEA, I was a Remote Research Intern at Rochester Institute of Technology, USA collaborating with the awesome Tijay and also a Research Associate Intern at the IIJ Innovation Institute (IIJ-II), collaborating with the amazing Hajime. My work was focused on Email and DNS Security extensions, and Process-based Isolation with Linux Unikernels.

I graduated from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in 2020, with a major in Computer Science. I was selected twice as a Google Summer of Code student, with KDE (2017) and GNU Linux (2018). Parallel to my second GSoC, I spend my summer at Ben Gurion University, Israel as a summer exchange student studying the use of Machine Learning with cyber security and business intelligence.

I was also an active member of amFOSS club advised by Vipin P. amFOSS is a student-run community where like-minded people gather together to learn, solve and have tonnes of fun working on computer science problems and on exciting projects.

More Details are enclosed in my CV. Detailed description of my interest could be found in here.
