Research Statement

My research focuses on designing efficient and scalable clustering algorithms for a variety of applications in engineering. The objective of my Ph.D. thesis is clustering of wireless edge network data in a dynamical setting—where data evolves with time—for treatment of controller placement problem in Software Defined Networks. This work lies at the intersection of Machine Learning, Mathematical Optimization and Control Theory.
