Aniruddha Saha

PhD Candidate at University of Maryland Baltimore County


I am currently pursuing my PhD in Computer Science at University of Maryland Baltimore County advised by Hamed Pirsiavash. I am broadly interested in identifying and mitigating adversarial vulnerabilities in deep learning models.

My research has involved studying Backdoor Attacks in CNNs - curating attacks and building fast solutions to identify backdoors. I have also investigated how spatial context introduces vulnerabilities in fast object detectors like YOLO and how to train detectors robust to contextual adversarial patches.

I have worked as an Applied Scientist Intern at Amazon Rekognition and a Machine Learning Intern at Matroid.

Prior to this, I was a Software Engineer at Samsung Research Institute Bangalore, India where I was part of the DRAM Group in the Memory Team of Samsung Semiconductor India Research.

I also spend some time in photography, writing and playing chess. I am a big football fan and I support Manchester United FC.
