I am a Research Scientist at Fujitsu Laboratories of America (FLA). My current research interests are in the areas of Smart Grid, networking, data analytics and machine learning, cybersecurity, and home automation.

Prior to FLA, I was part of Itron's Smart Grid Architecture and Standards team, where I focused on Advanced Metering Infrastructure network architecture, communication protocols and standards. Prior to Itron, I was the System Architect at Firetide, Inc., where I was responsible for the design and analysis of multi-hop wireless mesh protocols and algorithms, and for the evolution of the company's mesh product line.

I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University's Computer Science Department under the supervision of Professor David B. Johnson, defending a dissertation titled "Adaptive Demand-Driven Multicast Routing in Multi-Hop Mobile Ad Hoc Networks". I received a B.A. degree in Computer Science (summa cum laude) and Mathematics from Mount Holyoke College.

MAJOR AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Smart Grid, data analytics, networking, cybersecurity, mobile and wireless computing, performance analysis and simulation, and distributed systems.
