Postdoctoral Research Scholar
Shana Moothedath received the B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees in Electrical and Electronics from the Kerala University, India, in 2011 and 2014 respectively, and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India, in 2018. She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. Her research interests include network security analysis, structural analysis of large-scale control systems, and applications of systems theory to complex networks. She is recipient of the Excellence in Ph.D. Research award at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay for the year 2017-19.
My research objective is to develop scalable techniques for optimal and secure operation of cyber-physical systems. I leverage tools from control theory, machine learning, and game theory to address and solve these problems. My current research focuses on: (i) development of resource-efficient mechanisms for detection and mitigation of attacks to ensure security of networked systems and (ii) devising efficient algorithms with performance guarantees to solve optimization problems in complex systems. My research is inherently multidisciplinary and has led to many collaborative peer-reviewed conferences and journals at the top tier venues.
