Biography

Rohit Verma is a Research Associate in the Systems Research Group at the Department of Computer Science and Technology, University of Cambridge. Prior to joining the University of Cambridge, he was a PhD student in the Complex Network Research Group at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India (2016-2020). His primary area of research has been in the field of sensor data collection and analysis obtained from multi-modal sources. Currently, he is focused on the real-time aspect of data being generated by sensors deployed in the built environment. The idea being not only to store and learn from the data that these citywide sensors generate but to make crucial decisions with minimum latency.
