Research Statement

My research is along two main lines. My primary work is regarding application of Artificial Intelligence concepts in practical scenarios of Software Engineering practice. The primary scope of my work is the world wide web and software engineering concepts related to quality attributes such as usability, security and safety. My research work in MS is about usability in search in the context of social networks.

The area of my research aimed at security is related to the application of Artificial Intelligence concepts (such as theorem provers) through formal specification and verification of security protocols and frameworks. I work with Isabelle theorem prover and Z notation for computer supported modeling and reasoning of these frameworks. Recently, my focus has shifted to security on the smartphone platforms, specifically Android. I am currently working on usage control and attestation of this immensely popular smartphone software stack.

My aim through this research is not only to contribute to the global knowledge but also to enable the local market and industry in development and utilization of better techniques and technologies.

Teaching Statement

Teaching is an art as well as a science. With computer science, this dual nature becomes much more apparent with the theory and practicality of the different fields merging together. A good computer science teacher must have knowledge related to all the subfields of computer science. My experience in the commercial market and detailed knowledge of the low level details of programming and design enable me to convey the essence of contemporary technologies to my students. I believe in conveying a thorough understanding of the theoretical grounds on which a science is built and in enabling the students to understand the rhythm behind the practical applications of these theoretical concepts. The right mix of science and art is a key element in learning and teaching of computer science. Keeping with this view, I maintain a web site2 which offers resources related to computer science and contains my thoughts on how I find, practice and learn new technologies. I encourage my students to use this resource and even contribute to it.

The motivation in a computer science class comes not only from the feeling of seeing one’s work being applied but also from seeing how each part of the learning fits in to the greater whole. I believe in creating a classroom environment in which both these feelings can be mixed together. The aim is always to let the students have an enjoyable semester which conveys the details of the subject and enables them to continue their study after the semester is finished.

Above all, my experience in teaching has shown me that the best way to gain knowledge is to pass it on. I learn through my teaching and convey my knowledge to all those who have helped me gain it.

  1. Are you male or female? I am sorry for sounding like that but I was wondering. No part of your blog seemed to give a clue on that! 😐

  2. I am a male. Guess my writing is totally gender indiscriminate 🙂

  3. 😀 Ok.. got it now! Gee..feeling embarassed..Please delete my stupid question :p

  4. Actually, it wasn't stupid. I've taken a look at my blog and there really isn't anything to say what gender I belong to. Maybe some passing comment but nothing intentional. Weird!

  5. Hahaha.. perhaps.. :p

    So you're a teacher? Is there some other blog where you post regular stuff?

    Your blog is very technical. Like one of my friends' blogs called "Philosophical Ramblings' In fact, I came to your blog from there.

  6. Well, this is my primary blog. I used to write on blogspot but I like wordpress better. I'm not very regular because of teaching and learning and other stuff. And I'm sure there aren't as many "philosophical ramblings" here as I'd like there to be. (I intend to do something about that though)

  7. I also used to write on blogspot. Then I imported my whole blog to wordpress. I also tried a wordpress free host but I think I am comfortable with wordpress.com itself.

    Good luck with your blogging! 🙂

  12. Have you published source code for Apex and poly? I would like to use them in a research project class I am working on for my PhD courses.

  13. Thanks a lot for providing individuals with an exceptionally remarkable possiblity to read from here. It is always so pleasurable plus jam-packed with a good time for me and my office fellow workers to visit the blog not less than three times per week to see the newest issues you have got. And lastly, I’m also actually motivated concerning the splendid creative concepts served by you. Selected 2 points in this posting are certainly the most beneficial I have had.

  14. Dear Sir

    Your 3-part lecture series on document preparation using LaTeX was very informative. I had always felt that learning LaTeX was beyond my capabilities. But thanks to you, I have finally started writing my manuscripts in LaTeX. Thanks a lot, once again.
