I have joined the Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering, Seattle University starting 1st Sept 2015.

About me

I finished my Ph.D in Computer Science from the College of Information and Computer Sciences, University of Massachusetts, Amherst in Summer 2015. I completed my Masters in 2007 from IIT Bombay and worked in Oracle India from 2007-2009 as a Software Engineer before starting the PhD.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in Smart Grids, Distributed Systems and Networking, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Sustainability. My research has broadly focused on large scale networks, smart grids, and sustainability in smart buildings. My thesis focuses on cyber-physical systems related research in smart buildings and smart grids to optimize energy consumption and to cut electricity bills. I have also worked on optimizing resource utilization in Internet backbone networks.
