I am a third-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University where I am advised by Prof. Rachit Agarwal. My research interests are broadly in the areas of Systems & Networking.
Before this I was a Research Fellow in the Systems group at Microsoft Research India, where I worked with Dr. Muthian Sivathanu & Dr. Kaushik Rajan on improving the efficiency of datacenter scale Big-data analytics processing by co-designing the query engine with the underlying storage system.
I obtained my undergraduate degree in Computer Science & Engineering at IIT Guwahati, where I worked on practical & adaptive peer-assisted video streaming with Dr. T Venkatesh.
