I was born and raised in Hyderabad, the capital of the southern state of Andhra Pradesh in India. I completed my undergraduate education in Computer Science and Engineering in India before completing my Masters in Computational Biosciences from Arizona State University. I graduated with a PhD from the Computer Science and Engineering department at Arizona State University, USA in August 2009. My research interests centered around analytical computing solutions for challenging applications in domains like health and social computing. After my PhD, I completed a 2 year postdoctoral stint at the Media Lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology from Sep 2009 to Aug 2011 working in Dr. Sandy Pentland's Human Dynamics group and Dr. Frank Moss' New Media Medicine group. Since Sep 2011, I have been working as a data scientist for mobile health startup Ginger.io, which extends some of the research I was involved with at the Media Lab.
