Biography

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Durham University. Before this, I worked as a post-doctoral research associate at Newcastle University, a research associate at Thapar University (India), a visiting researcher at University of Klagenfurt (Austria) and on various academic positions for more than a decade. I received my PhD degree from the Thapar University (India), my Master and Bachelor degrees from the Punjab Technical University (India). For my contributions to the area of scalable and sustainable computing, I was awarded the 2018 IEEE TCSC Outstanding PhD Dissertation Award of Excellence. The main theme of my research is energy-efficient, reconfigurable, resilient and intelligent surfaces (smart city, smart grid, IoT-Edge-Cloud systems, healthcare systems, transportation systems). To develop myself as a researcher, I worked on various research projects awarded by EPSRC, the Department of Science and Technology (India), and Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. This facilitated me to collaborate with international researchers from the UK, US, Canada, Australia, China, Austria, Brazil, and India. Together, we published several research papers in the fields of software-defined networking, energy-efficient cloud data centres, edge-cloud computing, blockchain, particularly focusing on the creation of reconfigurable, resilient and intelligent surfaces. I led my team organizing workshops (SecSDN and BlockSecSDN) in conjunction with different IEEE Communication Society conferences like IEEE Infocom, IEEE Globecom, IEEE ICC, and many more. Contributing to the research community, I have served as a Topic Editor for Sensors, a Guest Editor for IEEE Transaction on Industrial Informatics, IEEE Network, Neural Computing and Applications (Springer), Computer Communications (Elsevier), and Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications (Wiley).
