About:

Hello, I am working as assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Information Technology Guwahati (IIIT G). I have joined IIIT G in July 2014. I have completed my Phd from Indian Institute of Technology Patna in March 2014. Previously, I was associated with Jaypee University and Syntel Inc.

Research Interests:

My research interests are in the area of wireless networks, network security and distributed computing. Specifically, I work in the protocol stack of wireless networks with focus on medium access control and network layers. Currently, me along with my reserach students are working on different MAC layer issues in IEEE 802.15.4 networks. Also, we are working on MAC and network layer design for Internet of vehicles (IoV). I am a part of the Design and Innovation centre (DIC) in IIITG, whose focus is on Internet of Things (IoT).

Sponsored Research Project: Title: Development of MAC associated schemes for large IEEE 802.15.4 based networks, funded by SCIENCE & ENGINEERING RESEARCH BOARD (SERB), Department of Science & Technology, Government of India.
