My Research



My research interests include Knowledge Discovery in Databases with application in the areas of Sustainable Energy and Network Intrusion Detection.

I have developed an Anomaly Based Network Intrusion Detection System (IDS) model, under the supervision of Prof. I. S. Thaseen at VIT University. The model was based on a hybrid Latent Dirichlet Allocation with Genetic Algorithm approach. The results of this work were presented at 4th IEEE International Advance Computing Conference.

I have worked as an Undergraduate Researcher under Dr. Amarjeet Singh at IIIT-Delhi's Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing Group. My work was focussed on electricity demand forecasting from time series data using data analytics. Current status of the project can be found on the Projects page.

My current work as a Research Associate at MUC is focused on optimization of HVAC loads and sub-systems in the IIIT Delhi academic campus.
