I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I lead the Networks and Mobile Systems Lab. My group’s research is driven by curiosity to ask questions that push the boundaries of what is possible across various topics including computer networks, user interfaces, mobile health and ubiquitous computing. I earned my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and my B.Tech. degree from IIT Madras.
