I am a third year PhD student at UIUC working with Prof. Brighten Godfrey. I am currently interested in the the design of deployable solutions that use multiple paths, each with startkly different properties, in wide area and wireless networks to improve application performance.
Previously, I worked on decentralizing wireless technology. I obtained my B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras where I worked with Prof. Radhakrishna Ganti at the Indigenous 5G Testbed and continue to maintain an active interest in 5G technology.
When I’m not working, I love reading, playing sports and organizing events!
