I am a fifth-year PhD student under Prof. Kamin Whitehouse in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. 

My research is focussed on wireless sensor networks and cyber-physical systems. In particular, I build sensing solutions to help track people in homes. I am also broadly interested in mobile computing, wearables and distributed systems. In the past, I have also worked on Grids and Computer Architecture.

My past-life:

I completed my B.E. from College of Engineering, Guindy in Computer Science in May 2010 and joined UVA for my Masters in Fall 2010. I received my Masters in Computer Science in Sep 2012 under Prof. Andrew Grimshaw.

I then worked as a Software Engineer for Zynga and PacketZoom between Sep 2012 and Dec 2013, before returning to grad-school in Jan 2014.

My other-life:

Besides being a grad-student, I am also an avid cricketer and rock-climber. I am also hoping to visit all countries in the world someday (current count = 34 countries) (visited countries).
