I am a final 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 are in the area of large-scale networked systems. My current research is focused on improving the user-perceived performance of data center applications such as big data systems and web services, along with designing various scheduling and resource allocation mechanisms for these systems.

I have been actively collaborating with Ishai Menache, Srikanth Kandula and Peter Bodik following multiple internships at MSR Redmond (Summer and Fall of 2012, and Spring 2014). Earlier, I was a intern at MSR Cambridge during Summer 2011 where I worked with Hitesh Ballani and Thomas Karagiannis. I also interned at AT&T Research Labs during Summer 2010, where I worked with Kobus van der Merwe, Jeffery Pang and Seungjoon Lee and continued collaborating with them for more than one year.

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