I'm currently doing my Masters course in Computer Science at Indiana University, Bloomington. I enjoy experimenting in the field of Computer Networking, Malware, Spam and Abuse domains. However, I would like to tag myself as a generalist since I know a little about many things apart from what I'm good at.
I like learning new things that fascinate me and I love to solve complex problems and challenges presented to me in my profession and experimentation. I also like documenting my work in the form of a blog so that others, along with me, can use it as a reference.

I have been working with Yugandhar for about an year. I am surprised by his technical expertise and his in-depth knowledge of whatever field he is into! He always knows what he wants to achieve and has clearly set up goals for it. He would direct me towards the goals in a constructive approach. He is always open to new ideas, suggestions and feedback and if seem good, he would accept them, which makes him a good leader. He credits his team members for their work along with timely feedback. It is such an honor to know and work with him.Srihari Thalla via LinkedIn
