About Me

I am a postdoctoral research fellow working under Prof. Chan Mun Choon in the Communication and Internet Research lab group at the School of Computing in the National University of Singapore. I received my PhD degree in 2016 from NUS, and my Bachelor's degree (computer science) in 2010 from PES Institute of Technology in Bangalore, India.
I work on smart sensing techniques for building transportation applications. Specifically, I use the smartphone and wearable sensors to understand the user's travel activity at very low power.
