About Me

I am a graduate student in the Department of Computer Sciences at University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am advised by Prof. Matt Sinclair. My research interests are in Computer Architecture and Systems and my Master's research focuses on optimizing GPU architectures for Deep Learning applications. During my Master's I have been a part of the effort to augment GPGPU-Sim to simulate Deep Learning kernels written using NVIDIA's cuDNN and cuBLAS libraries. I have also been an officer with W-ACM (ACM-W's UW-Madison Chapter) and have organized several technical and career oriented workshops at UW-Madison.
Before starting my Master's, I was a Design Engineer at AMD India in the Server Performance Group. At AMD I was responsible for workload characterization of server and cloud applications and was also responsible for a new trace sampling methodology which had dramatically improved sampling efficiency. I received my bachelor's degree (B.E.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology & Science - Pilani, Hyderabad Campus, India in 2015.
