I am an Assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal, India. I received my Ph.D in Department of Computer Science & Engineering from the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela, India. I was a PostDoctoral fellow in Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India. I was a visiting scholar at San Diego State University, CA, USA. I obtained M.Tech degree with a national level GATE scholarship, form NIT Rourkela, India and B. Tech from the West Bengal University of Technology.
My primary research interests include developing efficient solutions addressing different aspects for Cloud based systems, Serverless computing, and Fog-Edge. I have been working on these areas for over 8 years which includes the entire duration of my Ph.D. which primarily focused on developing efficient placement and pricing strategies for single and multi-cloud architectures. My PhD thesis title was "Virtual Machine Placement and Pricing on Cloud Data Centers" During my Postdoc, I developed an in house decentralized cloud setup for a collaborative cloud market. The work was first of its kind and published in 2019 IEEE Service Computing Conference (Core-A). To add to my experience on the area of Cloud Computing, I was a Teaching Assistant of NPTEL Cloud Computing course with Prof. S K Ghosh, Dept of CSE, IIT Kharagpur. Moreover, here at NITK I have introduced a new course named “Next Generation Cloud Architecture”. Currently, my research team is actively involved in developing solutions for cloud and serverless paradigms. Few of the issues currently being addressed include developing efficient embedding solutions for virtual network embedding problems, and mitigating the issues of Cold Start in function as a service (FaaS).
Apart from the top journals, I have publications in several top reputed conferences such as IEEE INFOCOM (Core-A*), IEEE/IFIP IM, IEEE CLOUD(Core-B), IEEE SCC (Core-A), IEEE ICC, IEEE GLOBECOM (Core-B) etc. I have also submitted an Indian Patent on, “A Stable Cloud-Alliance to Provide Uninterruptible Service” currently published and undergoing evaluation. I have several international collaborations and sound volunteer research experience as a reviewer of reputed international journals and TPC member of international conferences such as Springer Mobile Networks and Applications, IEEE Systems Journal, IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing, IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing, Elsevier Computers & Electrical Engineering,IET Communications, COMSNETS 2019-2021, GLOBECOM 2015 etc. I was one of the organising committee members for STEERS 2021. I am a Senior Member of IEEE and a member of ACM.
