I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science, Old Dominion University (ODU), working with Dr. Michael L. Nelson and Dr. Michele C. Weigle in the WS-DL research lab. Prior to joining ODU, I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, India.


My research interests are in the domain of Web Archiving and Social Media. Currently, I am working on using Web Archives to discover lost social media content. For my PhD, I will be working on web forensics using the web archives. You can find more information about current research from my blogs.
