Dr. Jayaraman works in the area of distributed systems in particular Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud and Mobile Computing. He has published over 100 papers in several top venues including Transaction of Cloud Computing, Elsevier Computational Science, Transactions on Large-Scale Data- and Knowledge-Centred Systems, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, The Scientific World Journal in the related area of his research. His Google Scholar citation is 3800+ with a h-index of 31 (

Prior to joining Swinburne, Dr Jayaraman was a Post Doctoral Research Scientist (2012 - 2015) in the Digital Productivity and Services Flagship of Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) Australian Government's Premier Research Agency. Prior to that, he worked as a Research Fellow and Lecturer at the Centre for Distributed Systems and Software Engineering, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia (2010 - 2011).

He is an active member and a significant contributor (research and development) to the EU FP7 STReP project (4.182M euro with EU funding of 2.455M euro), Open source platform for Internet of Things (OpenIoT - The project has focused on developing an open source cloud-based middleware platform for Internet of Things that facilitates sensor discovery, real time data analytics with use cases in agriculture, smart cities, smart manufacturing and elderly health care management domains. The OpenIoT project won the prestigious Black Duck Rookie of the Year Award in 2013.

Dr Jayaraman obtained his PhD (2011) from Monash University where he worked on developing a context-aware middleware for collecting data from wireless sensors networks using mobile smart phones in smart city environments. His thesis was titled "Cost-Efficient Collection and Delivery of Sensor Data using Mobile Devices". His PhD paper titled "Intelligent Processing of K-Nearest Neighbours Queries using Mobile Data Collectors in a Location Aware 3D Wireless Sensor Network" was awared the Best Paper Award at the Twenty Third International Conferences on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent
Systems (IEA-AIE 2010).
