Nirupam Gupta

Nirupam Gupta is a scientist in the distributed computing laboratory (DCL) at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. Prior to EPFL, he was a postdoc, and a teaching faculty at Georgetown University in Washington DC. Gupta's research work primarily focuses on (Byzantine) fault-tolerance, statistical privacy, and robustness in problems related to distributed machine learning, optimization, and cyber-physical systems. Gupta obtained his PhD in control systems from the University of Maryland (UMD) - College Park, in 2018, and his Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) - Delhi, in 2013.
