About

I am a final year Ph.D. scholar at IIIT-Delhi, advised by Dr. Sanjit K.Kaul. My Ph.D. is supported by TCS Research through their illustrious TCS research scholarship. I work broadly in the area of next-generation transport protocols, specifically but not limited to MultiPath TCP, QUIC and Age Control Protocol. Additionally, I enjoy working on problems in edge computing, wireless networks, Internet measurements and emerging applications.

I was a visiting researcher at the Chair of Connected Mobility at Technical University of Munich (TUM) from Jan-Nov, 2020. There I worked under the guidance of Dr. Vaibhav Bajpai and Prof. Dr.-Ing Jörg Ott. Prior to joining my Ph.D., I did my Bachelors in Engineering with a gold-medal from Panjab University, Chandigarh, India.
