Research Interests


Since 2021, I am with Nokia Bell Labs France, pursuing a CIFRE PhD fellowship. My work focuses on the emerging topic of connection density maximization in massive machine type communication networks through stochastic optimization. From 2018 to 2021, I worked with the Centre for Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research, IIT Madras as a project associate, working on various collaborative projects between industries and government institutions. I have experience with setting up and evaluating tailor-made communication systems for mission-critical scenarios. Recently, I have started working on exploring graph neural network-based frameworks to solve resource allocation problems in wireless systems. My work consists of developing optimization frameworks for optimal and approximate radio resource allocation using traditional convex and non-convex techniques along with state-of-the-art machine learning paradigms.
