Experience
Research Fellow July 2011 - Jan 2013
Indoor Localization: Engaged in developing novel fingerprint and non-fingerprint
based techniques for the area of indoor localization. Led a team of research en-
gineers to implement a solution that provides ±4 metre accuracy on Android
smartphones in real buildings in Singapore. Additionally helped implement
a working cloud assisted solution for iOS devices on SMU campus.
CAMEO: A new architecture proposal for advertisement delivery on smart-
phones to reduce delivery costs for wireless telecom operators and to reduce
the burden on metered wireless data plans of consumers. Implemented a
prototype version in Android user space which was demoed at Mobisys 2012.
LiveLabs: A framework residing both i n the smartphone s and in the cloud
that enables near realtime analytics on consumer behaviour with smart al-
gorithms powering the identification and classification of consumer activity.
Led a team of PhD stu de nts on architecture and design and collaborated on
implementations of ancilliary projects.
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India
Research Engineer January 2005 - December 2008
Helped implement a national experimental testbed to evaluate QoS over WAN
across India. Eight different institutes all over India were part of this exper-
iment over the ERNET. Co-designed and co-architected a solution to inte-
grated the IIT Bombay campus PBX with other institutes’ PBXes over WAN
using open source software and custom developed software.
In Spring 2005, conduc te d experiments on performance of Intel Centrino
wireless chipsets in closed indoor environments. Performed data analysis,
prepared detailed docume ntation and presented results and conclusions.
