Shayak Sen Shayak


I am a Fourth-Year PhD student at CMU where I am advised by Anupam Datta. My major research interests are logic and programming languages and their applications to security and privacy. Recently, I have been working on transparency enhancing technologies for data analytics systems.

I have been a research intern at Microsoft Research India (May-August 2013, July-Nov 2014) where I worked with Saikat Guha, Sriram Rajamani and Aditya Nori.

Previously, I was an undergrad at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and then I worked for a year as an Algorithmic Trader at Tower Research Capital LLC.
