I am an Associate Research Scientist at the New York University, Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP). My research interest’s lie in
the Internet of Things (IoT), with a focus on the networking aspects. I am an engineer by training and a researcher by profession. My work includes the development and implementation of the software and networking infrastructure for large scale deployments of cyber-physical systems. To date, I have played a major infrastructure development role in multiple projects at CUSP including Urban Observatory and Sounds of New York City.
I received my Masters from NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Computer Systems and Networking where I designed a prototype infrastructure that utilizes window mounted cellphones to continually capture images of New York City skyline to provide deeper understanding about how the city works.

Sonyc is a novel cyberphysical system that consists of a hybrid, distributed network of sensors deployed in the NYC that makes use of cutting-edge machine listening methods to constantly provide a rich description of their acoustic environment.
Masters Thesis on developing a cost efficient technique for performing persistent and synoptic observation of the lighting in city which can be used a proxy for understanding and improving the quality of life of people. This project aims to build an IoT infrastructure to further facilitate the research presented in Dynamics of Urban Lightscape on a larger and granular scale
