I am an Assistant Professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech.

Before this, I spent two years in the 
Stochastic Processes and Optimization group, which is part of the Mathematical Sciences Department at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center. I received my Ph.D. in ECE from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014 and was advised by Prof R. Srikant. Before that, I received an MS in ECE from UIUC, which was advised by Prof R. Srikant and Prof. Bruce Hajek. I also hold an MS in Applied Maths from UIUC. I obtained my B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras.

I am a co-recipient of the 2017 Best Publication in Applied Probability Award, presented every two years by INFORMS Applied Probability Society.
