Hi, I’m Aniketh Girish

I’m a second year PhD student in Internet Analytics group at the IMDEA Networks Institute and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Madrid, Spain advised by Dr. Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez. I emperically measure the privacy and security risks of smart home and Mobile ecosystem with a particular focus on consumer data protection and regulatory compliance.

Prior to joining IMDEA, I was a Remote Research Intern at Rochester Institute of Technology, USA collaborating with Prof. Tijay and also a Research Associate Intern at the IIJ Innovation Institute (IIJ-II), collaborating with the amazing Dr. 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.
