Here is the complete video of my research presentation to my thesis committee.

Thank you all for the encouragement.

The talk was entitled: ‘Data-Driven Modeling, Control and Tools for Cyber-Physical Energy Systems’

Penn Autonomous Race Club

The Penn F1/10 or the Penn Autonomous Race Car club has launched.

We get to modify an off-the-shelf race car with a camera and a LIDAR and our goal is to have it race through the corridors at Penn.

Check out the website I design for Penn F1/10

It might be 1/10th the scale but its 10 time the fun !


DR-Advisor webpage is online !

The website for the demand response tool developed in our research is now live !

Becoming a great fan of bootstrap website design..


SUNFEST graduate student advisor

I will get the opportunity this summer to be the graduate student advisor for Santiago Gonzalez, (Case Western Reserve University), as a part of the SUNFEST program at Penn.

SUNFEST, or the Summer Undergraduate Fellowship in Sensor Technologies is a unique program that provides talented undergraduate students with hands-on research during the summer in the area of sensor technologies.

Santi, is a Liverpool FC fan and will help us with implementing the Energy Analytics pre and post processing widgets for our DR-Advisor tool.

Great to have you on board Santi and looking forward to an exciting summer.


PRECISE Research Retreat

Here are the slides I presented at the PRECISE research retreat for DR-Advisor.


Motionview is a finalist at the first iDesign prize at Penn

We made it to the finals of the $50,000 iDesign prize at Penn.

This was our Kickstarter stye pitch :

Unfortunately, it was winner takes all and we did not win the prize; but I guess its fine; we can fail multiple times but need to only succeed once. We got a lot of good feedback from the panel of judges.
