I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann-Arbor in Prof. Alfred Hero's lab. I received my PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, under the supervision of Prof. Srinivasa Salapaka. I develop techniques and technologies that help in comprehensive modeling, analysis and control of complex network systems. Using my expertise in combinatorial and discrete optimization, mean field inference, robust and distributed control, distributed optimization and machine learning, I address a range of problems in network systems, including, but not limited to, power systems, large scale machine learning, medical sciences, and transportation networks.
I graduated with Masters in Mechanical Science and Engineering in Summer 2014 and Masters in Mathematics in Spring 2015, both from UIUC.
An ardent Cricket fan, I enjoy watching and playing Cricket a lot. I also have an inclination towards painting.
