## Home Hi! I am Sailik. I joined Arizona State University as a PhD student under [Dr. Subbarao Kambhampati](http://rakaposhi.eas.asu.edu/) in Fall, 2015. My research interests lie in the field of Moving Target Defense (MTD), Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) and Secure Artificial Intelligence (SAI). After being born in Bengal, I imbibed the love to learn, think, code, eat, read, listen to good music and photograph. I have a backbone, I like to disagree and conceptually understand an argument before accepting it. Being vocally self-critical about my present and past mistakes helps me change into a better person for the future. In case you are interested to know what our lab is upto, do check the Yochan lab [homepage](http://rakaposhi.eas.asu.edu/yochan/). Feel free to [reach out to me](#contact) for any queries (or say a 'hi'). You can download a copy of my CV [here](files/CV_sailiks.pdf). Lastly, since I get this a lot, the pronunciation of my name Sailik is `Sho-e-lik`. Its means the aesthetic quality of any work. ## Education - Joined PhD at **Arizona State University** (Fall 2015) - B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering from **Jadavpur University**, Calcutta (2009-13) - Alumnus of **St. Xavier's Collegiate School**, Calcutta (2009) ## Research ### 2017 **Securing Deep Neural Nets against Adversarial Attacks with Moving Target Defense** Sailik Sengupta, Tathagata Chakraborti, Subbarao Kambhampati \[[ArXiv Manuscript](https://arxiv.org/abs/1705.07213)\] \[[AAMAS-DC, 2017](./files/AAMAS_DC.pdf)\] **RADAR - A Proactive Decision Support System for Human-in-the-Loop Planning** Sailik Sengupta, Tathagata Chakraborti, Sarath Sreedharan, Subbarao Kambhampati \[[UISP Workshop @ ICAPS, 2017](./files/radar_uisp.pdf)\] \[[slides](https://www.dropbox.com/s/k5mxrv8dk0niepu/UISP_final.pptx?dl=0)\] \[[demo](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5lYDnSh3B8)\] **A Game Theoretic Approach of Strategy Generation for Moving Target Defense in Web Applications** Sailik Sengupta, Satya Gautam Vadlamudi, Subbarao Kambhampati, Adam Doup&eacute;, Ziming Zhao, Marthony Taguinod, Gail-Joon Ahn \[[AAMAS, 2017](http://rakaposhi.eas.asu.edu/AAMAS-2017-MTD.pdf)\] \[[slides](https://www.dropbox.com/s/rcn32127584np6e/AAMAS-Session1D.pdf?dl=0)\] \[[video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03rydUG2lBU)\] -------------- ### 2016 **Compliant Conditions for Polynomial Time Approximation of Operator Counts** Tathagata Chakraborti, Sarath Sreedharan, Sailik Sengupta, T.

I contributed to the launch of APA in US, Europe and Japan. I try to meet high industrial coding standards (robust, readable, error-free, simple and secure) in backend, frontend and scripting languages. Having successfully qualified as a security certifier at Amazon, I hold the highest standards in regards to software security. (Having experimented with JUnit, karma-js and other frameworks, I also am a little ahead on the learning curve as far as software testing is concerned.) ## Teaching - Instructor, CSE 486 - Capstone, ASU (Fall, 2015) - Teaching Assistant, CSE 471 - Introduction to Artificial Intelligence, ASU (Fall, 2016) ## Stuff And sometimes, life happens. - \[CSE575\] Can AI accurately predict missing objects in a picture? ([slides](files/Predicting_Missing_Objects_in_Images.pdf), [report](files/identifying-occluded-objects.pdf)) - \[CSE591\] Wouldn't it be cool if robots sat in meetings, recognized teammates, and generated transcrips of the meeting highlighting who spoke what?
