About me

I’m a PhD student in Computer Science department at Cornell University, advised by Prof. Rachit Agarwal. My research interests broadly lie in the intersection of networking, systems and hardware.

I build across-the-stack solutions, including re-architecture of network protocols, host hardware and OS stacks with the goal of providing end-to-end correctness and performance guarantees for applications.

I am a recipient of Cornell University Fellowship and Google PhD Fellowship. Prior to coming to Cornell, I was an undergrad at IIT Kanpur.
