Pradeep Nagaraju received his Bachealor of Engineering degree from the department of Electronics and Communication, M.S.Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Visvesvaraya Technological University, Bangalore , India in 2007. During his senior year in his undergraduate studies he served as a "Founder and President" of a robotics club, ROBO-MSR. From 2007 to 2008, he worked as a software engineer for Accenture Services Pvt. Ltd. He was the recipient of "Best Employee in Excellence" award at Accenture. He is currently working as a research assistant in Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems Laboratory, Department of Electrical Engineering, State University of New York at Buffalo. He is currently pursuing his Master's thesis under the supervision of Dr. Tommaso Melodia.
