I am a post-doctoral research associate with the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and was a part of the Wireless Communications Lab from 2001 through August 2006. Prior to that, my undergrad degree was obtained from the Indian Institute of Technology at Madras.

My research interests cover the broad expanse of:
1) Quickest Change Detection problems with applications in Biology and Infrastructure Monitoring, e.g., see recent IT submission,
2) Wireless Communication problems with focus on Limited Feedback/Channel Modeling issues in Single and Multi-user MIMO Systems, e.g., see a) survey talk on my research, and b) material from the short course I gave at RAWCON 2009 on closed-loop and multi-user MIMO (with disclaimer below).
3) Network/Cross-Layer problems (ongoing work), and
4) Robust Control Analysis and applications, e.g., see past work here.

The tools that I use in my day-to-day research are those involving non-linear renewal theory and random matrix theory.

Credits: To those uncountable souls whose HTML source files landed in my emacs. I have lost track of the number. Thank you all.

Disclaimer on short course slides: Quite a few slides for the short course have been borrowed from a large number of researchers' papers/presentations, so please spare me the plagiarism blushes. I have put this file here so that someone else may (!) benefit from my two weeks of compiling information from multiple sources. No more, no less. If you need ppt file, please email me.
