I am a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, advised by Prof. Manfred Morari. I am currently working as a Scientist Intern at Amazon Web Services in the Amazon AI Platforms organization.

In 2018, I co-founded Flexergy AI, a SBIR company that provides data-driven energy- and cost-efficient solutions for building control and energy analytics.

I received M.Sc. degree in Robotics, Systems and Control from ETH Zurich, Switzerland in 2015 and B.Tech. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India in 2012. I had the pleasure of working at the Mercedes Benz Research and Development in Stuttgart, Germany in joint collaboration with the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control. At ETH Zurich, I also worked at the Automatic Control Lab. I was an Intern at ABB Corporate Research, Baden-Dättwil, Switzerland. ABB was kind enough to feature me on their webpage :)

I have expertise in machine learning, control theory, optimization and statistics applied to cyber-physical systems (CPS). I received the Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS) 2018, the Energy Systems Best Paper Award at the American Control Conference (ACC) 2017 and the Best Presentation Award at BuildSys 2016.
