I am a research staff member at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. I hold a Ph.D in Computer Science from the University of Maryland (CP). I specialize in the design and analysis of (approximation) algorithms for optimization problems (the decision versions of which are NP-hard). My main focus has recently been on resource allocation problems arising in distributed computing/networking.
Prior to this, I obtained my bachelors and masters degrees in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology (Madras).
