I am a researcher in IBM Research – India (IRL). My research interests include Mobile and Telecom technologies, parallel and distributed systems and their application to industry solutions. I am a member of ACM and has served as the TPC of networking and cloud computing conferences (LANMAN2010-11, INFOCOM 2011-12, and IEEE-Cloud 2010-13). I received my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer engineering from the University of Cincinnati. I am currently exploring scalable personalized education methodologies enabled by IT as part of Smarter Education research. Prior to this (2008 - 2012), I lead the Wireless/IT convergence technologies research in Next Generation Systems and Smarter Planet Solutions Department.
