About Me

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University advised by Xiaoyi Lu. I am currently a Graduate Research Associate at the Parallel and Distributed Systems Lab. I was previously a Graduate Teaching Associate for the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. My research interests include Storage Systems, Distributed Computing, and Cloud Computing.

Over the past two summers, I interned in the storage systems group at IBM Research Almaden, where I worked on ways to make persistent memory easier to use for programmers.

I got my undergraduate degree in Computer Science from BITS-Pilani, India, where I developed an interest in parallel computing. As part of my undergraduate thesis, I worked at the Centre for Parallel Computing, University of Westminster, where I was exposed to cloud computing for the first time. Since then, I have been working on high-performance storage and networking solutions for cloud middleware.
