I am a second year CS graduate student at University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am currently working with Prof. Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau in the area of file systems.

Prior to joining this outstanding department at Madison, I worked for 4 years as a Software Engineer at ST Microelectronics, Greater Noida, India. I worked on the two happening wireless technologies - Bluetooth and Wireless LAN, during my stay in ST. My primary responsibilities included integration of Bluetooth stack and Wireless LAN driver onto varied customer mobile platforms.

I did my Bachelors in Computer Science from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli. NIT Trichy(formerly REC Trichy) is one of the leading institutes in India for Bachelors studies.

Research Work

I am currently studying user mode file system framework called FUSE. FUSE provides interesting opportunities for file system design - isolation, faster development and user-mode operation.
