Hi! I am Akash. I am a Ph.D. student at NESL. Before joining NESL in 2018 as a PhD student, I did my undergrad at IIIT-Delhi in India where I worked with Prof. Shobha Sundar Ram.

I am always up for discussions on internet-of-things, automation, and technology in general. Feel free to ping me if you have a question or would like to collaborate on a project.
