I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science and Engineering department of IIIT - Delhi, India. I work with Prof. Singh on energy sustainability within smart buildings. Specifically, our work is to detect energy wastage instances and to provide novel solutions to such problems.

Prior to joining Ph.D., I did my masters from National Institute of Technology Rourkela, India. During masters, I worked with Prof. Turuk, and the focus of our work was to localize sensor nodes both in static as well as in mobile scenarios.
