I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. I am advised by Dr. Dimitrios Koutsonikolas at the UB Wireless Networking and Systems (UB WiNS) Lab.

My research interests mainly focus on wireless networks, specifically milimeter wave networks, and mobile computing. I am interested in enabling applications such as high quality video streaming and virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR) using high bandwidth mmWave networks while taking into account the energy constraints on mobile devices. I am also interested in finding solutions accross the different layers of the networking stack to improve the performance and reliability of 60 GHz (802.11ad) wireless LANs.

Bio

I am originally from New Delhi, India. I pursued my Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Manipal Institute of Technology, Karnataka, India. I received my B.Tech. degree in 2016.

I moved to Buffalo, New York in Fall 2016 to pursue my Master's of Science (MS) degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. During this time, I worked in the ODIn Lab on probabilistic databases. I received my MS degree in 2018.
