I am working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering at IIT Kharagpur since October 2015. I completed my Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) in May 2015 and have worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Delhi till October 2015. I received my M.Tech. in Computer Technology from the Electrical Engineering Department, IIT Delhi in 2010 and B.Eng. in Electronics and Telecommunications from the University of Pune in 2008. I worked in IBM Software Lab, New Delhi, as a Software Engineer, from June 2010 to July 2011.
I have been working in the following areas of research:
My endeavor is to pursue a career in academia, and also to make significant research contributions in mobile computing & communications domain.
My research interests are in the area of wireless networks and systems. In particular, I am interested in developing efficient schemes for next-generation networks. These primarily would include: improved handoff techniques and cross-layer optimization in wireless networks, user-centric and energy-efficient multimedia transmission, adaptive multimedia multicast and broadcast schemes and technologies, resource allocation in heterogeneous networks, and robust multimedia delivery in MANETs.
My research paradigm involves experimental study, building accurate analytical models, system optimization, balancing trade-offs, and extensive simulation study. I believe the research should be motivated by real-world technological issues and should be focused on meeting the needs/expectations/preferences of the users and the system while ensuring efficient and improved performance. In addition to this, the proposed solutions need to be implementable and easily deployable in the ever-evolving and complex real-world network systems.
