Palanivel Kodeswaran

Ph.D. Student
Department of CSEE
University of Maryland, Baltimore County

I have graduated and now work at IBM Research-India. My current page is available here .

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Computer Science at the Department of CSEE, University of Maryland, Baltimore County. My advisor is Dr. Anupam Joshi. Before coming to UMBC, I spent four wonderful years as an undergraduate student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering  Anna University,  also known as the College of Engineering Guindy(CEG).

I am interning at IBM Research, Bangalore during the summer of 2010. Previously, I spent the summers of '08 and '09 at Microsoft Research, Redmond working with Evelyne Viegas on Privacy Issues.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the broad areas of systems and networking, mobile computing, wireless networks and context aware computing. I am also interested in social networks and developing practical privacy solutions for social data access.
