I am a fifth year Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical Engineering (EE) Department at USC. My primary research interest is the theory of stochastic networks, and applied probability. I also work on game theory applied to traffic models and routing in queueing networks, performance analysis of large-scale virtualized computer systems and network switches. I am co-advised by Professor Rahul Jain of the EE Department and Professor Amy R. Ward of the Marshall School of Business at USC. I also have the privilege of working with Dr. Vijay G. Subramanian of Northwestern University, Dr. Iraj Saniee and Dr. Indra Widjaja of Bell Labs and Professor Peter W. Glynn of Stanford University.
In a previous life I worked on Aritificial Intelligence systems at the Information Sciences Institute at USC, with Professor Carole Beal (now at University of Arizona). Following this, I worked in industry for 3 years, first at FICO working on statistical analysis and machine learning for credit card and debit card fraud detection as an Analytics Scientist, and then on statistical learning models as a scientist at the Applied Research Group (now defunct) part of Satyam Computer Services Limited and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. During this period I also worked with Professor Shalabh Bhatnagar of the Indian Institute of Science on stochastic approximation and reinforcement learning.
Coming soon! See CV for details.
