I am a first year Ph.D. student in the department of Computer Science at Cornell University where I am advised by Prof. Rachit Agarwal. My research spans Operating Systems and Virtualization. I am interested in both understanding current problems while solving them and in designing Operating Systems for future datacenters.

Before joining Cornell, I had a wonderful time in the Systems group at Microsoft Research India. Here, I was advised by Dr. Muthian Sivathanu and Dr. Saikat Guha while working on mobile networks and storage stack for deep learning frameworks.

Prior to that, I obtained my undergraduate degree in Information Science and Engineering from PES University, Bengaluru. During my undergraduate degree, I was introduced to systems research as an intern at Microsoft Research India. I also spent six months in the industry as an intern at Intuit India during my final semester of undergraduate degree.



Please feel free to contact me or drop by my office if you are at Cornell.
