Hello! I'm Abhay Mitra, a junior year undergraduate student at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in IIT Delhi.

During the summer of 2014, I worked on linearly homomorphic digital signature schemes with Prof. Shweta Agrawal. We reviewed the efficiency of available provably secure schemes, and compared and contrasted the different approaches to achieve linear homomorphism. We also constructed a scheme which was faster than existing schemes, and are currently working on proving the security for the same. I'm also working on a deep learning based approach to recognize human expressions from photographs.

Research Interests

Broadly, I am interested in computer systems. I am interested in Cryptography, Cloud Computing and Storage Systems. I am also exploring the field or Articial Intelligence, particularly Deep Neural Networks.

System Administration

I am also a part of the 'updaters' group at IIT Delhi, playing the role of a system administrator for the department. As an updater, I am responsible for maintaining the department's entire IT infrastructure, properly utilizing the resources at hand as well as starting new services.
