About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Networking group, working with Prof. Suman Banerjee.

Research Interests

Networking and distributed systems with emphasis on topics like data center networks, software-defined networking, and design of new algorithmic techniques for such systems.

Selected Projects

Power-efficient TCAMs that can reduce power consumption of TCAMs by more than 80% (
Software-based routers that can achieve a classification rate of more than 10Gbps (Storm)
A storage-, bandwidth-, and cost-effective scheme for Cloud File Systems (CAROM)



Work Experiences


I collaborated with Weifeng Cao on several interesting projects on bioinformatics. One of them has lead to a publication, while others are under construction. We hope they will turn into something useful soon.
