July 2011 update: I will be joining King's College London as a Lecturer from September 2011. I am looking for good research students to work on social networks, networked systems or the intersection of both. One funded PhD studentship is available. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me (my CL email ID given on the left will continue to remain functional).

Research Overview

I am interested in systems architecture. My current work is at the intersection of social networks and networked systems, and explores how to scale rich-media content delivery systems using information embedded in social networks. I have also dabbled with an architecture to enable citywide Wi-Fi access.

Before coming to Cambridge, I worked at different layers of the stack, ranging from semantic web groupware for information streams (at IBM Research) and congestion control theory (at University of Texas, Austin) to ATM device drivers (Cisco Systems).
