Bajpai joins CISPA from the Technical University of Munich and says, "I am very much looking forward to working with the excellent scientists at CISPA." One of the topics he would like to advance together with his colleagues is securing emerging cyber-physical systems. These include, for example, networked industrial machines or devices in the Internet of Things. In addition, Bajpai is interested in promoting the spread of privacy-enhancing protocols to prevent the creation of wide-ranging user profiles on the Internet. By building decentralized systems, Bajpai also sees an opportunity to strengthen the digital sovereignty of users.
Bajpai's previous research awards include a Best of CCR Award, a Best Paper Award from SIGCOMM, and an IEEE Comsoc Award for the best dissertation in "Network and Service Management."
