I am a Researcher at Microsoft Research (MSR) India. Prior to this, I was a Post-doc in MSR India and obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Delft University of Technology (TUDelft) in The Netherlands.

My research interests lie at the intersection of Systems and Technology for Emerging Markets broadly in the areas of AI, IoT, and Edge Computing. I’m particularly interested in building affordable, reliable, and scalable IoT devices to address societal challenges. To this end, at MSR I am currently working on numerous projects, please see more details at AI and IoT systems for Society. Please visit my projects and publications page for more details.



Internship (3-6months): I’m always on the lookout for bright students with strong, hands-on experience in IoT, ML, and Computer vision. Please email your CV directly if you are interested.
