I am a PhD student in the College of Computing, part of GTNoise and NTG. My advisor is Professor Nick Feamster. I also collaborate closely with Dr. Renata Teixeira.
Prior to joining Georgia Tech, I completed my MS in Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, advised by Professor C. Mani Krishna. My thesis was on energy management in Sensor Networks. I obtained my Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology in Jaipur, India.
I am interested in network management, measurements, and routing protocols. Currently my work centers on understanding the characteristics of home networks, and their effect on application performance. I lead the BISmark project.
I am also interested in software defined networks, mobile networks, privacy and security.
