Brief Biography

I am a tenure-track assistant professor associated with the Optimization and Decision Systems group in Engineering and Technology Institute Groningen at the University of Groningen. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Automatic Control Laboratory, ETH Zurich working with Prof. John Lygeros. I earned my Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego, where my advisor was Prof. Jorge Cortes. I received a Bachelor of Technology in 2008 and a Masters of Science in 2010, both in Mechanical Engineering, from IIT Delhi and ETH Zurich, respectively.

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
