I've been at Edinburgh since November 2006. Previously, I worked as a research staff member in the Computer Science department at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) as part of the Mobile Systems Laboratory headed by Prof. Rajive Bagrodia. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in August 2004 from State University of New York at Stony Brook, where my advisor was Prof. Samir Das. Earlier, I obtained a M. S. (Computer Science) degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio in December 1999, and a B. Tech. (Computer Science & Engineering) degree from the Regional Engineering College (now, National Institute of Technology), Warangal, India in May 1998.


My research interests are in the area of Networked and Distributed Systems with a primary focus on Wireless Networks and Mobile Systems. Within Informatics@Edinburgh, I'm a member of the Networks Research Group as well as the Security and Privacy group. My recent/current research is on the following topics:
