Spent Fall ‘17 at UT Austin as a Visting Researcher with LASR

I am a 5th year Ph.D. student at the Department of Computer Science, UNC Chapel Hill. I’m advised by Donald Porter who leads the OSCAR lab. While at Stony Brook, I had the privilege of also being advised by Rob Johnson, and Michael Ferdman both of whom I still occasionally collaborate with. More recently, I’ve been collaborating with Chris Rossbach at U.T. Austin, and VMware Research Group, on all things accelerators.

I am broadly interested in System Software (OS, File Systems, Compilers), and Computer Architecture. I spent a considerable part of the first 2 years of my Ph.D. benchmarking and thinking about the BetrFS project. At the moment I’m:

I followed my advisor to UNC when he moved to Chapel Hill in Fall 2016, from Stony Brook University where I spent 4 amazing years, both as an M.S., and a Ph.D. student. Before moving to the USA for graduate school, I lived in Bangalore, India for 9 years. Before that, I spent about 9 years in Singapore and Malaysia as a kid.

I’ve got a bad case of the travel bug. I enjoy some amount of outdoor activity, especially in calm, less-trafficked places. I used to be an avid gamer, and fantasy/science-fiction reader, although I’ve done very little of either in the recent past.

I am an ordained Dudeist priest.
