About me

I received B. Tech. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Nagarjuna University, India, in 1995 and the M.E. degree in Systems and Information from Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani, India, in 1997. Between 1997-02, I worked as a software engineer (Novell IDC, Bangalore, 1996-97) and a faculty member (Sri Venkateswara College of Engineering, Chennai, India 1997-2000 and KDU College, Penang Campus, Malaysia 2000-2002).
I worked on my PhD between 2002-07 under the supervision of Prof. C. Siva Ram Murthy of Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, India, and received my PhD degree in the 45th convocation of IIT Madras in July 2008. From August 2006 to May 2007, I worked as project officer at IIT, Madras, India. Since May 2007 I am working as a research fellow at the Hamilton Institute, National University of Ireland Maynooth, Ireland.

Research Interests
