About me

I am on the market for postdoc and R&D positions in industry!

I am a sixth year PhD student in the CS Department, part of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, at New York University.

I am part of Open Networks and Big Data Lab, NYU Systems and NYU WIRELESS. My interests in computer science lie in the areas of both networked mobile systems and data science. On the mobile systems front, I explore methods for improving network performance in next-generation wireless and mobile communication technologies, such as mmWave. On the data science front, I focus on algorithms and methods rooted in statistics for spatiotemporal forecasting and analytics. In the end, I am interested in bringing these two disciplines together to design smart systems for urban spatiotemporal sensing applications. My larger goals beyond PhD 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.
