I am a fourth year PhD student in the department of Computer Science at The University of Texas, Austin.
I am advised by Prof. Vijay Chidambaram. My research interests include performance and reliability of file and storage systems. Recently, I have been exploring the storage stack and data pipeline in ML training.
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, where I worked with Prof. K Chandrasekaran of NITK and Prof. Bhaskar Krishnamachari of USC Viterbi School of Engineering, on a link layer protocol to optimize downloads in mobile networks.
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 :)
