Research Scientist
India Research Laboratory, Bangalore, India



My focus lies in developing innovative technology solutions that integrate several emerging technologies such as Cognitive IoT, Cloud based platforms such as IBM's BlueMix, Big data analytics, in-situ sensing, remote sensing and geo-spatial analysis
---also specifically in solar/energy harvesting and water quality space.

I lead experiments targeted towards development of cognitive IoT controlled optical solutions for boosting solar yield for creation and growth of new businesses impacting solar sector in Indian and global markets.

In the water space, work is geared towards developing high resolution cloud-based, real-time sensing platforms with enhanced geo-spatial features for monitoring water pollution for rivers in India. This is done in collaboration with Univerisity of Chicago and several pilots have been conducted in various parts of India.

Prior to my work at IBM, I worked as a postdoctoral scientist at University of Chicago in the area of Nanophotonics. I have over seven years of innovative research experience in emerging nanotechnologies with applications in energy harvesting, telecommunications and sensing.
