I work as a Software Engineer in Red Hat Product Security. I like to code in C,C++, write patches, do research and analysis for security bugs. In past I did some projects in Google Summer of Code [KDE]. Previously I used to work in Red Hat's Desktop team as Software Maintenance Engineer which included fixing bugs on vast area of Desktop Applications for the components based on Qt/GTK/Motif shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and maintaining RPM packages for RHEL.
