Prior to joining Education research, I led the Services Analytics group at IBM Research – India during 2008-12. The mission of this group was to develop tools, methods and analytics that can help IBM’s services business standardize and optimize operations, adopt innovative models for global delivery, gain deep insights on delivery health and enable outcome-oriented services business. At IBM, I have also worked for some time in the area of systems management, particularly techniques and tools for application, infrastructure and process monitoring. In the past I have worked extensively on formal techniques for system analysis and design, particularly on graphical formalisms such as sequence diagrams and state-based notations.

I joined IBM Research in 2003. Prior to that, I received PhD and MS degrees in Computer Science from Stony Brook University, NY, USA, and a Bachelor of Computer Science and Engineering from Jadavpur University, India.
