I am from Dharwad, a small town in INDIA. I am pursuing doctoral studies under the guidance of
Dr. Eitan ALTMAN (INRIA). I obtained the Master of Science(M.Sc Engg) degree from Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore,
in 2009 and the Bachelors of Engineering (BE) degree from National Institute of Techonology( (NIT), Bhopal, in 2004.
During 2004-2007, I worked at Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR), Bangalore, as Scientist-B.
I am situated in Avignon, the City of Popes. I work from LIA,
University of Avignon.
My research interests are in modeling and performance evaluation of resource allocation problems in wireless networks using game theoretic tools. In particular, I am working on medium access control (MAC) games, jamming games and routing games. Here the goal is to understand the equilibrium behavior of the network, its dynamics, and design simple pricing based mechanisms that improve the aggregate network performance. I am also working on modeling and analysis of problems in green networking using tools from stochastic geometry. The primary goal here is to develop techniques that reduce total power consumption in cellular networks while maintaining minimum quality of service.
My other area of interest is network economics. I am working on developing models to study monetary interaction between internet service provider (ISP) and content providers (CP). The goal here is to study implications of regulating such monetary transaction in the Internet, which is one of the central issues in the ongoing `net neutrality' debate
