Personal Summary

Mohit is working as a software research engineer with Emerging Networks Lab (ENL) research unit of TSSG. He is also pursuing his Ph.D. in the Department of Computing and Mathematics at the ENL research unit in TSSG, Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland. He joined in 2015 as a Masters student, and has since been working as a part of the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) funded CONNECT research centre. During his master studies, he worked on SFI-CONNECT-IBM project “SmartHerd”, which focused on the welfare and monitoring of dairy cows, and the early detection of lameness in cattle with the help of technology. He is also working on the follow on use-case project MELD(Machine Learning for Early Lameness Detection) of SmartHerd, which is funded through the IoF2020 project ( under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

He is also currently working on a CISCO funded project that aims to develop a framework for dynamic task sharing and distributed decomposed data analytics in fog enabled IoT deployments with cloud support. His current research interests include Fog and Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Distributed Systems, and Distributed Data Analytics. His research focuses on leveraging fog computing for data analytics in IoT deployments, and in particular decomposing data analytics and machine learning programs for fog enabled IoT systems towards effective resource and service management to support and meet the requirements for real-time IoT analytics.


Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Engineering from The LNM Institute of Information Technology, Jaipur, India in 2015. He has also previously interned with ArcelorMittal, Kazakhstan, and McAfee, India. During SmartHerd project, he has also been on research exchange with Innovation Exchange, IBM Research Labs, Ireland.
