I am a PhD Student in Computer Science at Cornell University. My advisor is Paul Francis. I received my under-graduate degree in CS from IIT-Madras. Earlier still

My current research is in the area of overlay and P2P networks. I am currently working on determining the hardness of finding the latency-wise nearest peer in large P2P networks. Prior to this, I have worked on Swaplinks, a P2P substrate for heterogeneous P2P random graph construction and heterogeneous peer selection. Please see my research page for more detail.

I am TAing CS419 this spring.

Over the course of my Ph.D., I have interned at Google (Summer 2006) and Lucent Bell Labs (Summer 2005).
