I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at SUNY Binghamton. I obtained my PhD. from University of Massachusetts Amherst. My research encompasses the fields of computer networks, wireless networks, ubiquitous computing, cyber-physical systems and data science. I direct the Future InterNet Design Lab (FIND) at SUNY Binghamton.

Together with Prof. Arti Ramesh , I have started , an educational initiative whose aim is to make computer science education accessible to people (i.e., students, professionals, computer science enthusiasts) around the world. We believe that everyone has the right to good education, and geographical and political boundaries should not be a barrier to obtaining knowledge and information. To ensure that students around the world have access to high quality educational content, all content available on has been tested and reviewed by students.

I also have a YouTube channel that I update regularly with computer science teaching and research videos. Check it out here.

My research group has been conducting research to understand and quantify the impact of COVID-19. Check it out here.

Here is my analysis to help people understand COVID's spread and how to win this battle. My goal here is to keep it simple and educate as many people as possible. Check it out here.

I am looking for motivated M.S. and Ph.D. students to work on problems in the area of wireless networks, ubiquitous computing and data science. If you are interested, please send an email with your resume.
