I’m a PhD student in the Sysnets group at MPI-SWS (since Nov’09), where I work under the guidance of Rodrigo Rodrigues (advisor), Umut Acar (co-advisor), and Björn Brandenburg. At MPI-SWS, I’m also mentored by Pedro Fonseca and Alexander Wieder.
During my PhD, I also got the opportunity to collaborate externally with Akshat Verma and Flavio Junqueira. I spent the summer of 2012 as a research intern working with amazing Dushyanth Narayanan in the Systems and Networking group at Microsoft Research Cambridge.
Prior to joining MPI-SWS, I worked as a member of technical staff at Adobe Systems (till the end of 2009) and in the HPC group (2008-2009) at IBM Research–India under the mentorship of Yogish Sabharwal. Before that, I was a graduate student at IIT Kanpur advised by Mainak Chaudhuri and late Sanjeev K. Aggarwal.
