Aanjhan is currently a post-doctoral researcher in the System Security Group at ETH Zurich. He obtained his PhD in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Srdjan Capkun. His research mostly revolves around the physical-layer security of wireless systems (e.g., secure localization and ranging, GPS security, (anti-) jamming techniques). In the past, he has worked on computer architectures, specifically, multiprocessor systems, cache coherency protocols and communication bus protocols.

Prior to joining the System Security group at ETH Zurich, he worked at Robert Bosch GmbH's Car Multimedia Division "Blaupunkt" for over 3 years involved in research and development of embedded modules for top automotive manufacturers including Audi and Volkswagen. He holds a bachelors degree in Electronic and Communication engineering from Anna University in Chennai, India and a Masters degree in Microelectronics from Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland.

I am currently in the job market looking for interesting research positions in the broad area of wireless / hardware systems and their security. [CV]
