Hi. I'm Nipun Batra.

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at University of Virginia working with Kamin Whitehouse and Hongning Wang. Prior to that I completed my PhD. from IIIT Delhi advised by Amarjeet Singh and Pushpendra Singh (both IIIT Delhi) and Kamin Whitehouse (University of Virginia). I broadly work on computational sustainability problems and smarthome applications. My current work focus is on non-intrusive load monitoring. You may find my Google scholar profile here.
