About me

Hi there! Welcome to my website. šŸ˜Š

Iā€™m Harsh, a Ph.D. student in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Virginia, advised by Prof. Negin Alemazkoor. I completed my M.S. from The Pennsylvania State University, advised by Dr. Mohamad Darayi. I earned my B.Tech from Manipal University.

My research interests broadly lie in machine learning, deep learning, data-driven decision making, and simulation-optimization. Specifically, I would like to apply these in adversarial settings, interdependent infrastructure system networks, computational sustainability problems like energy and urban mobility, and social issues like security and planning. My work has been published or is forthcoming in The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE), and Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) conference.

Previously, I have spent a wonderful five years working as Senior Data Scientist in the Advanced Analytics team of A.T. Kearney. I also had the chance to work in the AI Research Lab of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).
