Archimedes once said, “Give me place to stand on, and I will move the earth”. I desire to leverage my passion to achieve new computational approaches to produce greater results with reduced resources (space, time). To answer the questions like Can something be efficient, yet small, easy and still perform herculean tasks.
My area of interest is the study and contribution towards field of algorithms and optimized solutions. So I will undertake postgraduate study in Computer Science in Stony Brook University. To achieve this I plan to study the relevant disciplines which will enable me to accomplish what I desire. In my work experience and academics I have constantly strive towards this goal.
After securing 205th rank in All India Entrance Exam, I got admitted in the National Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra,INDIA --an institute of national eminence-- one of the top 20 institutes in India. My under-graduate syllabi has exposed me to all the core areas of computer science like data structures and algorithms, software engineering, operating systems, compiler design, automata theory networks and network security. These courses have provided me a good foundation in the core concepts.
As part of final year project, I proposed and implemented “Hop count method for detection and countering DDoS attacks” which is a packet filtering algorithm based on the IEEE research paper to prevent DDoS attacks. We demonstrated using Network Simulator to support the proposed technique. The project was selected as the best project ever presented in the college to counter-attack IP Spoofing. My interest of constantly updating myself with the latest developments in the field of operating systems was recognized when I bagged first prize at the National Level in the Open Solaris Quiz, Organized by Digit Technology Magazine during my college time. Also I ranked second at the National Level Science Talent Search Examination (NSTSE)-2007 during schooling.
Apart from the academic life, I also took part in many cultural and technical fests of the college during my under graduation. I won First Prize in the acting under the play “Ramayana”, in final year of college I became the President of the “Audio Visual Aid” club. I was actively involved in extracurricular activities; these social activities have improved my interpersonal and leadership skills, and enabled me to appreciate the value...
