Middletown, NJ
Subject matter expert in network architecture, network design, algorithms, optimizations

I am a Lead Member of Technical Staff in the Network Evolution Research Departmet of AT&T Labs - Research. I have broad research interests in the areas of network architecture, design, and optimization. Prior to joining AT&T, I worked at the routing and signaling group of Ciena CoreDirector switches and before that at the Networking Research Department of Lucent Bell Laboratories.

I received my B.Tech. (Computer Science) from Indian Institute of Technology (I. I. T.), Kanpur, India and my Ph.D. (Computer Science) fromUniversity of Washington, Seattle.
