I am a master's student at The University of Texas at Austin, where I am being advised by Prof. Aditya Akella. I am interested in programming languages and formal verification of systems.

I recently graduated from IIT Bombay, India, with a B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering. For my senior-year thesis, I worked with Prof. Supratik Chakraborty and Prof. Amitabha Sanyal on translation validation techniques for optimizing compilers.

Last summer, I interned at Netflix in their Big Data Platform team. We worked on optimizations to reduce the latency of their workflow orchestrator engine. In summer 2021, I worked at Mosaic Research Capital -- a high-frequency trading firm in Hong Kong -- as a Core Engineer Intern. We developed market-making & liquidity-taking algorithms and implemented them on a highly concurrent low-latency system to trade on leading cryptocurrency exchanges. I have also interned at Uber and AWL Inc. -- an IoT startup in Hokkaido, Japan.

I visited TU Braunschweig in summer 2019, where I was advised by Prof. Thomas Deserno and we worked on building a system for crowdsourcing image segmentation.
