profile picture

I am a second year Ph.D. student in the department of Computer Science at Cornell University where I am working with Rachee Singh, Robbert van Renesse and Fred B. Schneider. My research spans disaggregated systems and networking. I am interested in both building systems to enable disaggregation and in designing applications for disaggregated systems.

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.
