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 broadly falls under networks and distributed systems and in particular within 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 and on-going research is on the following topics, focusing mostly on various facets of next-generation (5G) mobile networks:
