I am a second year PhD student advised by Prof. Brad Campbell. My research focuses on offloading cloud based IoT applications to the edge of the network by utilizing existing infrastructure.

Experience

Research
I was introduced to academic research during my master's degree at IIT Bombay. I was advised by Prof. Krithi Ramamritham and I worked in the Smart Energy Informatics Lab where we had an amazing team! We designed a sensor fusion based occupancy detection system and investigated the impact of occupancy on energy usage.

Industry
I have worked at Adobe Systems as an Android developer for the Lightroom and Photoshop Mix mobile photography apps. I've also worked at EnLite Research, a startup focused on reducing electricity usage in office spaces and improving user comfort.
