I am a graduate student (since Aug 2014) in the department of Computer Science at Cornell University. I am pursuing a PhD in the field of computer networking. My advisor is Prof. Hakim Weatherspoon. I also collaborate closely with Prof. Rachit Agarwal at Cornell and Hitesh Ballani and Paolo Costa at Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK.
The focus of my research is to design predictable and high performant network fabric for rack-scale architectures within datacenters, which can efficiently support converged traffic (comprising IP, storage, and memory traffic). I also like to build hardware prototypes (on FPGAs) to support and test novel systems and networking functionalities.
Before coming to Cornell, I did my undergraduate studies at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, majoring in Computer Science and Engineering. I graduated 2nd in my class.
|Shoal||A lossless network for high-density, disaggregated racks which acheives high scalability with bounded worst-case throughput and latency, at low power, cost and complexity. [Learn more]|
|P4FPGA||An open-source compiler that compiles down P4 codes to FPGA platforms.|
|DTP||Clock synchronization protocol for datacenters, which runs in the physical layer and achieves ~100ns bounded precision between any two nodes in the datacenter.|
Besides research, teaching is yet another component of graduate studies that I thoroughly enjoy. In the past I have served as a course staff for following courses -
