department at the
University of Texas at
Austin in Fall 2016.
Prior to joining UT Austin, I will be spending one year as
a post-doc at
the VMWare Research
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
I blog about systems research at The slow, the fast, and the correct. You can
