Pandarasamy Arjunan (Samy)

I am a postdoctoral scholar at Berkeley Education Alliance for Research in Singapore (BEARS) Limited, a University of California, Berkeley’s research centre, in Singapore. I work for the SinBerBEST 2 program (Theme D: Data Analytics for the Built Environment) under Prof. Kameshwar Poolla. I did my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering at Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi (IIIT-Delhi), India under the guidance of Dr. Amarjeet Singh and Prof. Pushpendra Singh. Before that, I have received my Master degree in computer applications from Madurai Kamaraj University, Tamilnadu, India.

My current research interests lie in the intersection of Data Science and Cyber-Physical Systems, and their applications pertaining to smart environments and energy sustainability. Specifically, I focus on developing systems and techniques for energy monitoring, benchmarking, prediction, and anomaly detection by leveraging smart meter and other opportunistic data sources. More recently, I have started investigating how we can leverage Infrared Thermography (IRT) for city-scale building diagnostics and energy auditing.
