Vinod Ganapathy an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Automation. Prior to joining IISc, he was a tenured faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University from 2007 to 2017. He earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2007 and a B.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering from IIT Bombay in 2001.
The primary focus of his research is computer security. At IISc, he directs the Computer Systems Security Laboratory. Here they seek to build practical computer systems with sound security guarantees. His research projects have considered security issues in a broad spectrum of computer systems, from cloud platforms through Web browsers to mobile devices. He has wide-ranging interests, and my projects usually draw on ideas and methods developed in a variety of areas, such as applied cryptography, program analysis, formal methods, machine intelligence, and hardware architecture.
