I'm a fifth-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin, working under the guidance of Professor Keshav Pingali in the Intelligent Software Systems (ISS) Group. I received my B.Tech. in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, India in 2012.
Before joining Ph.D. program at UT Austin, I worked with IBM Research - India. I have also interned at Georgia Tech (2011), VMware (2013) and Facebook (2018).

Research Interests

My research interests are High-Performance Computing, Graph Analytics, Compilers, Runtime Systems, Distributed Computing, and Computer Architecture. Currently, I am working on distributed systems for graph analytics applications at a very large scale, both in terms of the size of graphs and number of machines in a distributed cluster. I focus on performance, scalability, productivity, and reliability for these systems.
