I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin advised by Prof. [Simon Peter](https://cs.utexas.edu/~simon/). My interests lie in the areas of **Systems & Networking**, particularly in research and development of scalable, efficient and resilient networked systems.
Presently, I am working on:
- Flexible stateful TCP offload to programmable SmartNICs with fine-grained parallelism.
- In-network coordination and replica discovery in distributed filesystems.
- Mechanisms for scaling *client-local* distributed filesystems to datacenter scale.
**I will be moving to the University of Washington, Seattle in January 2022.**
