I am a second-year graduate student in the Computer Sciences department at University of Wisconsin-Madison, advised by Prof. Matt Sinclair and Prof. Shivaram Venkataraman.

My research interests lie in the area of computer architecture, and its intersection with computer systems. My latest research focuses on realizing improved performance for large-scale, heterogeneous, accelerator-rich systems.

Until July 2020, I was part of Nvidia Graphics in the role of ASIC Design Engineer for the SoC Memory Subsystem team in Bengaluru (India). I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani in 2019.

  It is not a large exaggeration to say that everything else in a computer exists in order to bring information swiftly to the ALU for manipulation; and for the ALU, adding is the mechanical equivalent of breathing.
