I am a grad student and Alumni Scholar in Computer Science @ University of Wisconsin Madison. I am interested in operating systems, file systems and storage systems. I am working with Prof. Andrea Arpaci-Dusseau and Prof. Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau in the The ADvanced Systems Laboratory (ADSL). I was awarded the Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship in 2014.

I did my undergradation in Computer Science @ College of Engineering Guindy, Anna University. My advisor was Prof. Ranjani Parthasarathi. My undergraduate research project focused on effective usage of flash storage in computer architecture. My CV can be found here.

I blog about systems research at The slow, the fast, and the correct. You can find me on Twitter at @vj_chidambaram.
