It's all about Research!

The Study

I obtained B.Tech (Hons) in Computer Science & Engineering from IIIT Hyderabad, India in 2006.

I followed it up with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Southampton, UK in 2009. My advisors were Prof. Nick Jennings and Dr. Nicholas Gibbins at the School of Electronics and Computer Science.

In both cases, my field of specialisation was AI (Multi-Agent Systems). Further details here.

My subsequent research has been more diverse and spanned across the fields of AI, Machine Learning, Game Theory, Smart Grid, IoT and Blockchain. Some of it has been captured in peer-reviewed papers and patents.
