Biweekly Lunches

We recently revived the biweekly Trust Lab lunch with the greatest turnout yet! During one of these gatherings, we had the pleasure of introducing Prof. Chethan Kamath, a newly recruited core faculty member at Trust Lab. Another lunch saw a felicitation ceremony to honor Prof. Biswabandan Panda and his students, Anubhav Bhatla and Navneet Navneet.  In the latest lunch, Prof. Ashutosh Gupta presented his preliminary findings of the recent DDOS attack on the IIT Bombay website.

“There is no free lunch,” as they say, and at Trust Lab we combine lunches with both work and play!
