Srinivasan Keshav is the Robert Sansom Professor of Computer Science in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Fitzwilliam College. Previously, he was a Professor at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science.
Although he started out as a researcher in computer networking in 1988, since 2010 his focus has been on reducing the carbon footprint of energy generation, transportation, and buildings. For the past couple of years, he also worked on improving the performance of the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain so that it can be used as the foundation for highly-scalable energy systems, such as for transactive energy and renewable energy certificates.
He has recently turned his attention to the carbon sequestration and biodiversity potential of forests, looking at both conservation and restoration.
