I am a Ph.D. candidate at Northeastern University working as a Research Assistant at Secure Systems Lab (SecLab) under supervision of Professor Engin Kirda. My research is currently focused on Web Security and Privacy and I am working on finding methods to bypass Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) by mutating HTTP requests using fuzzing approaches. I have previously worked on browser fingerprinting, and preserving user privacy by limiting the data shared between ad exchanges by adding security layers to the browsers.
Besides research, I have around 4 years of work experience in the industry as a DevOps and Software Engineer which helped me improve my technical skills by working in agile teams with lots of technical challenges to explore.
