 About me  
I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Aalto University, Finland. My advisors are Prof. Mario Di Francesco and Prof. Tarik Taleb. I received my Master's degree in Mobile Computing - Services and Security from Aalto University and my Bachelor's degree from the National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal.
My research interests are edge and fog computing, IoT, and communication networks. Specifically I am interested in wireless technologies for future IoT networks. To this end, I work with modeling and simulation to analyze and solve challenges in realistic networks.
