I am a Senior Director at the research arm of Delos, I work at the Delos HQ in New York City. Earlier I used to work at their state-of-the-art research facility in Rochester MN called the Well Living Lab. My primary focus is on creating machine learning systems to characterize occupant behavior in indoor spaces and invoke actuation to optimize their wellbeing. As a part of this, I also work on building robust and scalable big data analytics pipelines capable of handling and processing data from hundreds of sensors for producing actionable insights. 
I was am a first second third fourth fifth sixth year 
Computer Science graduate student at The University of Iowa where I was am advised by Octav Chipara. I graduated in May 2017. My research interests lie generally in real-time systems utilizing machine learning for health-related applications. At Iowa, I worked on identifying and evaluating hard-to-hear contexts for people wearing hearing-aids with in-situ data collected in real-time. Before arriving at the University of Iowa, I worked with Mohammed Abdul Qadeer. I love pie shakes. I recently found out (to a lot of disbelief) that I actually have an Erdös number. My brother, Saif, is a structural-biologist and a constant source of inspiration.
