I am a PhD student in the Compuer Science department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I came here in the fall of 2010.

I am mainly interested in systems infrastucture for high performance computing. This term is deliberately vague because I am interested in far too many things to list down individually. I haven't nailed down what I will be working on yet, so keep watching this space. I like systems - in the broadest possible sense, though my interest usually ends at compilers - and I like HPC, so ideally, I'd want to do something that straddles both areas. I am currently a research assistant for Prof. William Gropp who is also my advisor.

I hold a Masters degree (MS) in Computer Science from the University of Utah (my advisor there was Prof. Matthew Might. I also worked with the Flux research group) and a Bachelor's degree (BE) in Computer Engineering from the University of Mumbai (my final-year project guide was Prof. Vivek Borkar).

Before getting into graduate school, I briefly had a real job.
