      I'm a Ph.D student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University. I'm currently working towards a thesis in the area of Wireless Body Area Networks. Previously, I was working towards my Masters thesis in the area of Delay Tolerant Networks under Prof. Arobinda Gupta at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur . I worked in the Intelligent Systems Laboratory.
      I'm basically from the beautiful state of Kerala. I was bought up in the beautiful city Bangalore, Karnataka. I did my postgraduation from West Bengal. The exposure to the diverse cultures and languages of these states has influenced me a lot.
