Hi! My name is Raj.
I work as an Applied Scientist at Microsoft. I'm also pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at UC Davis advised by Prof. Zubair Shafiq. My areas of interest are machine learning, computer security, and their intersection. My present research focus is investigating the underground economy of fraudulent Amazon reviews.
I graduated from UC Berkeley in May 2020 with a Masters in Information Management and Systems. My previous experience has been in applying ML to security issues such as detecting fake news, hate speech, adversarial machine learning and phishing and spam detection.
In the past, I have had the opportunity to work with Facebook and IBM. I have also been involved in Sec-ML research at UC Berkeley, IIT Kharagpur and Princeton University.
