I joined Google Brain and Tensorflow recently.

I earned my MS and PhD degrees from Stanford University with Prof. John M. Cioffi and B.Tech degree from IIT Delhi with Institute Silver Medal (awarded to the top student). I worked at Microsoft Research in Mobility and Networking research group after graduation (2013-15) with Dr. Victor Bahl, Dr. R. Chandra and Dr. S. Kandula. I was an Associate Research Scholar in EDGE lab working with Prof. M. Chiang and Prof. K. Jamieson at Princeton University from 2015 to 2017.

Recent research collaborators include Prof. J. Jiang (U. Chicago), Prof. M. Levorato (UC Irvine), and Prof. B. Lall (IIT Delhi).

Research Interests: Video Analytics, Edge computing, Machine learning, Mobile systems, Communications and networking
