I am an associate professor in the computer science department at Tufts University. My research interests span networking and distributed systems. My current interests include cloud and mobile systems, wide area networking, and future Internet architectures. I am also interested in designing technologies for social impact, especially in the context of developing regions. My students and I are part of the NAT(Networking At Tufts) group.

Earlier, I completed my PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, a post-doc from Microsoft Research, UK, and undergrad from LUMS. I was also a visiting professor at LUMS in Fall 2011. 

Fall 2020 Applicants: I am actively looking for PhD students for Fall 2020. I have multiple openings in the research areas listed above. Candidates with inter-disciplinary interests who want to work on designing technologies for social impact are highly encouraged to apply. 
Note for Tufts undergrads: If you are interested in doing research with me, please shoot me an email. I have ongoing projects in mobile computing, cloud and data center networking, Internet architecture and protocols, and technologies for social impact.
