I received my PhD in 2013 in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, where my advisor was Dr. Nikhil Chopra. I was a Postdoc (2014-2017) in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, San Diego under the supervision of Prof. Jorge Cortes. In the second half of 2007, I worked as a Junior Research Fellow at the National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore. In 2008, I worked at the Panacea Medical Technologies, Bangalore as a Technical specialist on medical robotics.

My research interests include networked control systems, event-triggered control, control under computational and communication constraints, distributed systems and control. Some of the applications I am interested in are cyber physical systems and networked transportation systems.
