My research interests are in the area of analysis, performance management, and optimization of distributed systems and networks. I am a part of the Distributed Systems Research Group at IBM India Research Lab, Bangalore, since October 2010. I work on problems related to cloud computing.
I obtained my PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in September 2010, advised by Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher. My PhD thesis was on Feasible Region Calculus, a fundamental theoretical analysis of timing issues in distributed systems. I received my B.Tech and M.Tech degrees from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India, in Computer Science and Engineering.
I am a recipient of the best paper award at the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems 2009, the best student paper award at the Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems 2007, the Vodafone fellowship for the academic year 2007-08, the Andrew and Shana Laursen fellowship for the year 2005-06, and the C.L. and Jane Liu award from the Department of Computer Science at UIUC in 2007.
