PhD Student,
Department of Computer Science, Cornell University

I am a PhD student in Cornell CIS where I am advised by the incredibly amazing 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.

I like to juggle, and lately, I've been working on 5-ball siteswaps. Additionally, I enjoy passing clubs and occassionally performing with the awesome folks at the Cornell Juggling Club. I also love speeding on my e-bike down the steep inclines of Ithaca.
