Stephen Lee

BIO

I am a Ph.D. Candidate at University of Massachuestts Amherst. My advisor is Prof. Prashant Shenoy. Before joining UMass, I was a research associate at Tata Research Development and Design Center. I completed my Masters from Chennai Mathematical Institute and my Bachelors from St. Stephens College, Delhi.

My research interests lie broadly in the area of distributed systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS), with an emphasis on smart cities, energy and transportation. My work involves using principled approaches from distributed systems, machine learning, and optimization to optimize for energy efficiency, dependability of systems, and costs.

I also maintain the Smart* repository.
