About Me

Picture of Rajesh

My name is Rajesh Pandian M. I am a Ph.D. Scholar in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at IIT Madras. Since I work at the intersection of both theory and practice I am advised by Prof.N.S.Narayanaswamy and Prof. Rupesh Nasre. So, I am part of two labs: Theoretical Computer Science Group/Lab (fondly called TCS Lab) and PACE Lab.

I will always go after the impossible things (for others) and passionate things (for me). I have completed my bachelor's at Thiagarajar College of Engineering. I did my masters after a few years of a stint as a software engineer in the industry. I have a great passion for GNU's Philosophy and Free & Open Source Software. My native is Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India.

I am a grey-hat hacker ssshh! ;-). I wish to be a grey-hat hacker. I love programming, computers and gadgets. As a hobby, I sneak into websites by exploiting their weak spot and eavesdrop, then I'll get out without traces. Hmm, Tell me something difficult to do with the computer, I will show you a way to do it smarter and faster. Yeah! That's what I am in one line. ;-)

My PGP Key ID is 0xEA64BABE. If you wish to send me an encrypted email, you are always welcome! :-)
