I am a final year graduate student in the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am pursuing my PhD with Prof. Srinivasa Salapaka on (i) mean-field approaches to learning, graph clustering, unit commitment problems, minimum-cut problems, traveling salesman problem and its variants; (ii) control of microgrids for islanded and grid-tied operations in a decentralized framework; (iii) clustering and supervisory control of large power networks; and (iv) fast and robust control of nanopositioning systems.
I graduated with Masters in Mechanical Science and Engineering in Summer 2014 and Masters in Mathematics in Spring 2015, both from UIUC.
An ardent Cricket fan, I enjoy watching and playing Cricket a lot. I also have an inclination towards painting.
News: I look forward to working with Prof. Alfred Hero as a postdoctoral scholar starting this Fall at the University of Michigan, Ann-Arbor.
Recent publication(s): Our work on robust and optimial control of DC microgrids has been accepted for publication at the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics. [Pre-Print]
