Assistant Professor of Computer Science
Dr. Sandhya Aneja is a researcher, inventor, and computer scientist with a strong passion for teaching. She is also a Visiting Research Scholar at the Department of Computer Science, Purdue University. She has over 15 years of experience teaching computer science to undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Delhi and Universiti Brunei Darussalam.
As a researcher, she contributed to developing a mobile application to facilitate the matching of interests on available mobile devices and allow exchanging of messages and files. The application allows broadcasting names and a limited number of keywords representing users’ interests without any connection in a nearby region. The broadcasting region creates a mobile wireless network limited by the Wi-Fi region that is around 200 meters. She also received a US Patent on this technology.
As a computer scientist, she has received project funding from the University of Delhi as PI and University Brunei Darussalam as co-PI. She has extensively worked on Brunei Government funded projects with IBM Researchers. She is also a contributor to Sandia and DARPA-funded projects at Purdue University.
