I am a Research Staff Member at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights since September 2010. I am part of the Distributed Cognitive IoT department. My research interests span wireless sensor networks, privacy, and data mining. For the past several years, I have been working on spatiotemporal analytics - the analysis of moving objects and been developing various algorithms for spatiotemporally enabling IBM's big data products. Parts of my work are now embedded in products such as IBM InfoSphere Streams, SPSS statistical modeler, and InfoSphere SenseMaking.
I obtained my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in August 2010. I worked with Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher (for both my degrees) on developing an infrastructure toolset for human-centric sensing applications.
I started my M.S./Ph.D. at the University of Virginia in the Department of Computer Science in August 2003 with Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher. I moved to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher in August 2005. I received my B.Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in Computer Science and Engineering.
