I am a member of the Cognitive IoT Solutions Dept. My areas of interest include Multi-Agent Systems, Game Theory, Machine Learning, Conversational Agents and Smart Grid applications.
I received B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIIT-Hyderabad, India in 2006, and PhD in Computer Science from University of Southampton, UK in 2009. My PhD advisors were Prof. Nick Jennings and Dr. Nick Gibbins, and my focus area was self-organisation in multi-agent systems.
Prior to joining IBM, I was a Research Engineer at Secure Meters (UK) Ltd., Winchester, UK and a Visiting Researcher to University of Southampton, UK where I worked on developing A.I. based solutions for the smart grid domain.
More recently, I worked as the Principal Scientist at a stealth startup 'Showt', applying data analytics and machine learning techniques to search and data-acquisition systems.
