Anand Iyer

Assistant Professor • Georgia Tech


I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology. My research interests are broadly in the systems and networking space, with a current focus on systems that span the cloud, the network, and the edge in enabling efficient data analysis and machine learning.

I am looking for highly motivated PhD students to join my research group. If you are interested in working with me and like building real systems, please apply to Georgia Tech's CS PhD program and mention my name. If you are already a Georgia Tech student, please get in touch with me.

Before coming to Georgia Tech, I was a researcher at Microsoft Research. I completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley advised by Ion Stoica. Previously, I worked with the Mobility, Networks & Systems group at Microsoft Research India. Prior to that, I had a short stint with the Wireless Networking Group at Cisco. I completed my Masters degree in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin advised by Lili Qiu. My undergraduate degree is from College of Engineering, Trivandrum.
