About me

I am a Ph.D. student at School of Computer Science, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, since Fall 2009. I am advised by Prof. Prashant Shenoy. I completed my Masters in 2007 from IIT Bombay under the guidance of Prof. Anirudha Sahoo. I worked in Oracle India from 2007-2009 as a Software Engineer.

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.
