Sanmukh R Kuppannagari


Short Bio:

I am a 4th year PhD Student in the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Southern California under the advisement of Dr Viktor Prasanna. My current research focus is on developing fast (polynomial/pseudo-polynomial) approximation algorithms for security against data spoofing attacks in a Cyber Physical System such as Smart Grids.

Research Interests:

Approximation Algorithms, Smart Grids, Demand Response.
