I am a fifth year PhD candidate in the department of Computer Science at The University of Texas, Austin.
I am advised by Prof. Vijay Chidambaram. I also work closely with Amar Phanishayee. My research interests include performance and reliability of file and storage systems in general. More recently, I have been exploring the storage stack and data pipeline in ML training. My thesis focuses on accelerating DNN training from a storage perspective.
I am a member of the UT SaSLab and LASR.
Before joining UT, I graduated with a B.Tech in Computer Engineering from National Institute of Technology Karnataka in 2016.
I’m looking for full-time research positions in the industry starting Fall 2021, in India. [CV]
Apart from being a Systems Researcher, I enjoy painting, arts, and craft. My favourite medium is acrylic on canvas. I also make stuffed toys. Here's a preview :)
