I am a 6th year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign advised by Prof. Matthew Caesar. My research interests span various aspects of networked systems including design and performance, especially in data center networks.

I have been actively collaborating with Ishai Menache, Srikanth Kandula and Peter Bodik following my internship at MSR Redmond during Summer 2012. Earlier, I was a summer intern at MSR Cambridge during the summer of 2011 where I worked with Hitesh Ballani and Thomas Karagiannis. In the summer of 2010, I interned at AT&T Research Labs where I worked with Kobus van der Merwe, Jeffery Pang and Seungjoon Lee.

Prior to joining UIUC, I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur with a B.Tech degree in Computer Science & Engineering.
