I am part of Open Networks and Big Data Lab and NYU Systems. My interests in computer science lie in the areas of both networked mobile systems and data science. I am particularly interested in designing smart systems for urban spatiotemporal sensing applications as well as algorithms and methods for spatiotemporal forecasting and analytics. My larger goals are to have such systems deployed in the real world for measurable policy impact.
I am advised by Prof Lakshminarayanan Subramanian.
Prior to this, I spent nearly 3 years at TCS Innovation Labs in Chennai, India, working with a great team headed by Prof Anand Sivasubramaniam on building energy management. The work was mostly experimental research, where we employed building energy simulation tools to test a variety of hypotheses, and validate them against real world data collected from energy meters and sensors.
Prior to NYU, I obtained a Bachelors degree in Computer Science from IIT Madras in 2012.
