I am working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur. I obtained my Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree from Jadavpur University, Kolkata in 2009 and Master of Technology (M Tech) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), both from IIT Guwahati, in 2011 and 2014, respectively. As a system researcher, my primary research interests is in the intersection of computer systems, human computer interaction and machine learning. More specifically, I work on various aspects of computer systems and networks, the development of assistive technologies for societal well-being, and the design of distributed, pervasive, and ubiquitous technologies over mobile devices and smartphones.

I am coordinating the Ubiquitous and Networked Systems Lab (UbiNET) at IIT Kharagpur, focusing on various aspects of computer systems along with the design and development of ubiquitous and pervasive sensing systems. I am an active member of the COMSNETS Association, India, IEEE COMSOC, ACM SIGCOMM, and ACM SIGMOBILE. I am one of the founding members of ACM IMOBILE, the ACM SIGMOBILE chapter in India. Currently, I am also working as an Area Editor of Elsevier Ad Hoc Networks and Elsevier Pervasive and Mobile Computing journals.
