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
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
Prior to joining UIUC, I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)
Kanpur with a B.Tech degree in Computer Science &
I am on the job market. My application materials are
