I am Computer Engineer by profession and currently working as a Principal Software Engineer with Brocade R&D, US. I am also an active contributor to Open Source Projects like OpenDaylight and OpenStack. I am associated with OpenDaylight project since the inception of the project. I am an active contributor to the number of OpenDaylight projects including the OpenDaylight Controller, OpenFlow Plugin, OVSDB & Net-Virt project. My contributions to the projects are spread across various technology like network virtualization, clustering, southbound device management and NFV use cases. I am also part of OpenDaylight Technical Steering Committee (TSC) and OpenDaylight Board. Prior to joining Brocade, I was working with IBM Research, where I was conducting research in the SDN & Cloud technology domain for more than half a decade. I am passionate about disruptive networking technologies and prefers to contribute to these technologies through Open Source initiatives.
Apart from designing/developing code, i keep trying to improve my photography skills, mainly focussing on landscape, wild-life and portrait photography.
