Shrey Bagroy

I am an undergraduate student at IIIT-Delhi (class of 2018). Broadly, my (research) interest lies in working with data; most of my current work has been around data obtained from social media. My areas of interest include applications of machine learning, social computing, security and privacy in online social media. I am a part of the PreCog Research Group, a group of researchers who study, analyze, and build different aspects of social systems, led by Prof. Ponnurangam Kumaraguru. I'm also an enthusiastic web developer and like to work on interesting ideas.

Interests outside academics

My usual day usual consist of being buried in work, but I somehow manage to find the time to lift, watch a TV show (or two) and play some badminton from time to time. Lately, I have started to enjoy travelling and exploring new places.

I am also a food connoisseur and will never turn down a good meal. Some pictures of recent "good meals" can be found below.
