A paragraph about you: I am a PhD student in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette. I am trying to build systems which leverage the cellular network to make the mobile devices more energy efficient. I interned with AT&T Labs over the last summer and spent my weekends losing at soccer to my grey haired mentors. I worked as a software developer for Samsung R&D, India prior to Purdue, because of which I know some of the software hacks for Samsung TVs and its come in handy a few times :) During my free time (which should be non existent) I am either reading something or cooking or playing badminton or busy sleeping.
