Areas of Special Interests  Cloud Computing* Worked Closely with companies like Rackspace and Amazon for deploying the applications in the cloud. I was responsible for designing the functional specifications and security features. Also played a key role from a business perspective by representing our development team during initial stages.  Long Term Evolution (LTE)* Performed a detailed analysis of various literature releases of LTE technology by 3GPP community and presented a paper based on the credibility of LTE and effects of transitioning from GSM and CDMA to LTE by envisioning the changes in the backhaul network and as well as the technology.  Distributed Databases My interest towards distributed databases started when I was working at Infosys Technologies wherein my client who was based at UK had servers at various locations across Europe but the data was only 46% replicated. We did a complete analysis on network performance and provided a statistical data that proved effective utilization of networks will be achieved at higher level of replication and distribution. Projects & Papers  “Learning Abilities by a Speech Enabled Robot” Presented a technical paper based on the concept of Object extraction and Coordinated mechanical arm movement. The paper was awarded 2nd prize at two different national level symposiums. Designed and developed a working model of speech enabled robot using Object extraction features in MATLAB and Electronic circuits for the simulation of Coordinated mechanical arm movement.  Replicated and Distributed Database Explored and Implemented various functional and system properties of MS SQL Server in Replicated and Distributed environment which is the main component in cloud computing.  Write Symptoms Study Played a vital role in designing, developing and testing a java application for a research study.
