His technical knowledge and experience are in various areas including Cloud/Edge/Fog Computing Paradigms (including cloud platforms, Node.js and containers), Computer Networks, Software Engineering practices (Agile) and Quality Analysis, Economic models (Game Theoretic principles) and current day practices on cloud-based enterprise architectures, Internet of Things (IoT) based systems, Machine Learning and technology for traditional Indian dance (such as Kathakali) popularization. His mathematical interests includegame theory, graph theory, optimization principles etc. Over the past several years he has acquired practical knowledge and experience in various cutting-edge software engineering methodologies including Agile framework and has experience formulating and implementing various software engineering principles using Agile for large and small product development teams.
Dr. Iyer is active in doing practical industry-oriented research on the above topics of his interest. He also aspire to do research on technological innovations to popularize traditional classical arts such as Kathakali and Koodiyattam.
He has published two book chapters in the “Encyclopaedia for Cloud Computing” published in 2016 in addition to several book chapters, journals and conference publications. Dr. Iyer has delivered several practical workshops and talks on various cutting-edge technology topics in many academic and industry events in several countries including USA, Europe, Australia and Asia. Many of these were on the contributions made by him in his industry engagement for software quality analysis with current day software engineering principles such as Agile for application development involving cloud platforms, mobile platforms and IoT based systems.
Dr. Iyer is an IEEE and IEEE-CS Member. He has been a reviewer of many internationals Journals including IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems and several international conferences. He was also the program chair for several international conferences including ICCCI and ICIWE.
Dr. Iyer has strong teaching skills and boundless passion for teaching. He was a visiting faculty at IIIT-H (International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad), and has been teaching various subjects including “Game Theory for Computer Science", “Computer Networks”, “Advanced Computer Networks” and “Scripting and Computer environments” for which, he has framed the syllabus, developed the materials and references, structured the grading scheme and formulated continuous assessment strategies. Further, he was a member of Board of Studies at JNTU-H (a premium university in India) where he participates in framing the syllabus for the university’s upcoming academic year.
He is also an expert in performing Kathakali, a traditional Indian dance. He has composed a story in Kathakali and he spends a considerable amount of his personal time to uplift this traditional art by organizing Kathakali performances, workshops and demonstrations and performance by himself. He has also composed a Kathakalistory “Sri Mookambika Mahathmyam” which has been staged in multiple venues in India.
