Brief Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Automatic Control Laboratory, ETH Zurich working with Prof. John Lygeros. I earned my PhD from University of California, San Diego, where my advisor was Prof. Jorge Cortes. Prior to that, I received Bachelors of Technology in 2008 and Masters of Science in 2010, both in Mechanical Engineering, from IIT Delhi and ETH Zurich, respectively.

Note: I will be joining University of Groningen as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in February 2019. I have an open PhD position, please contact me if you are interested.

Research interests

Broadly, I am interested in optimization and game theory related problems in large-scale networked cyber-physical systems. More specifically,

  • Data-driven stochastic optimization for network systems

  • Distributed algorithms for network optimization problems

  • Dynamic analysis and learning in multi-agent games
