Aastha

I am a student at the Computer Science department of University of Southern California. I am really lucky to work with my advisor Prof. Ramesh Govindan in the Networked Systems Laboratory.

I earned a dual degree (B.Tech in Electrical Engineering+ M.Tech in Information and Communication Technology) in 2014 at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India. I was advised by Dr. Sumeet Agarwal and Dr. Ashwin Srinivasan for my masters thesis.

For an updated list of my publications, please refer to my g-scholar page. To collaborate please reach out to me on Linkedin, or shoot me an email at [ name][at]usc[dot]edu.

I briefly worked with Dr. Yan Liu, Melady Lab, USC from 2018-19.
