A little about me

I am an accomplished cybersecurity and software engineering professional with a strong foundation in Computer Science Engineering from Anna University, Chennai. Currently excelling as a Senior Software Engineer at Proxtera, I lead the development of secure, robust microservices and serverless APIs, focusing on IAM network security and data encryption.

As a distinguished Android Security expert, I have made significant strides in cloud and network security. My expertise extends to digital signature solutions and advanced serverless web application development, with a keen emphasis on internal security audits.

My commitment to cybersecurity shines through my impressive bug bounty achievements. I have actively identified and reported critical vulnerabilities to several organizations, including Jio, HomeCentre Landmark Group India, Mettl, and Singapore's LumiHealth app. My proactive approach to uncovering and addressing complex security risks underscores my exceptional skills in cybersecurity.
