Brief Bio
I am an associate professor at Embedded Software group of Delft University of Technology since 2013. My research interests are in the area of Tactile Internet, Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Energy Harvesting and 60 GHz millimeter wave networks. I have supervised 18 PhD students (15 graduated, 3 ongoing) and more than 40 MSc students (36 graduated). I have participated in several European and Dutch national projects in the area of IoTs, 60 GHz communications, Smart-energy systems, Personal networks and Cognitive Radios. I have (co)authored more than 200 publications in the peer-reviewed international transactions/journals and conferences. I was responsible for the signing of an MoU between IISc-TUDelft.. In 2015, I received 4TU University Teaching Qualification diploma with distinction. I have served on the editorial board of many international journals and magazines including IEEE Transaction on Green Communication Networks, IEEE JSAC, IEEE Communication Magazine, IEEE Surveys and Tutorials and Elsevier-Communication Networks. I am a regular reviewer for many prestigious journals and conferences and serves as the TPC member for various conferences. I am also contributing to the academic community by leading many IEEE activities, such as memberships of standards boards, leading technical committees, etc. I was nominated as the vice-chair of IEEE Tactile Internet standardization group. For my excellent research contributions, I am selected as the IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer on Internet of Things for the period 2016-2018. From 2005-12 I was a senior researcher and adjunct faculty at TU Delft working on the EU FP7 Magnet (and Beyond) Project and the Dutch project PNP-2008 on Personal Networks (PNs), Future Home Networks, etc. I completed my PhD from IISc, Bangalore, India in 2003. During my PhD research, a scalable VoIP conferencing platform was designed. Many new ideas including a conjecture were formulated and tested by developing an application suite based on my research findings. The work involved an understanding of network protocols, application design and human-computer interface. My thesis work lead to a startup venture, Esqube Communication Solutions. I was leading a team of engineers developing many real-time applications including bridging anonymous VoIP calls called Click-to-Talk for Ebay.com. While at Esqube, eight patent applications and three PCT applications were filed along with my colleagues. Esqube was selected as top 100 IT innovators in India in 2006 by NASSCOM and top 100 in promising companies in Asia by RedHerring in 2008. I am a senior member of IEEE and ACM. ... More >>
