Karthik Vaidhyanathan is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Computer Science, University of L’Aquila, Italy. He obtained his Ph.D. from Gran Sasso Science Institute, Italy. His main research interests lie in the intersection of software architecture and machine learning with a specific focus on microservices and IoT domains. His research focuses on how machine learning techniques can be leveraged to better architect self-adaptive systems and further how to better define architecting practices for developing Machine Learning-enabled software systems. As a part of his research activities, he serves as a reviewer/organizing committee member in various workshops, conferences, and journals.

Karthik also poses more than 5 years of industrial experience in building and deploying ML products/services and he is working as a part-time consultant ML architect at Founding Minds, India.
