I am a Post-doctoral candidate under the supervision of Arnaud Legout and Walid Dabbous in the DIANA project team at Inria Sophia-Antipolis. I joined the DIANA team in September 2009 as a PhD Candidate and I defended my thesis in December 2013. During my PhD, I did an internship under the supervision of David Choffnes and Arvind Krishnamurthy at the University of Washington (from June 2012 to December 2012). Prior to joining Inria, I was a masters student in the School of Information Technology at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi.
