Operating Systems, Distributed Systems, Networking, Performance Analysis and Performance Modeling
From the day I first got access to a computer, I have been interested in operating systems.
As I pursued my undergraduate in computer science, Prof. T.V.Gopal introduced me to distributed systems and spurred my interest in the field.
Then I spent an enjoyable year-and-a-half working with Prof. Arul Siromony on distributed objects.
Coming to UW-Madison in fall 2001, I was attracted to the Condor Project and spent three years working on real-world distributed computing. My work centered around addressing the challenges in data intensive distributed computing. We have some interesting publications that you should not miss.
During the summer of 2004, I got an opportunity to work with Prof. Mary Vernon. I enjoyed that experience and decided to continue my doctoral research under her. We developed TCP-Madison a high performance transport protocol that achieves high utilization and fair bandwidth sharing without creating packet loss and without requiring any router modification. I am looking for a job :). If you are interested in hiring me, please send me an email.
