About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. I am also a member of Distributed Computing Systems Group where I work with my advisors Prof. Abhishek Chandra and Prof. Jon Weissman. I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from University of Minnesota - Twin Cities in 2014 and 2016 respectively.

My research interests are in the fields of Operating Systems, Distributed Systems, and Cloud Computing. My current research focuses on building a large-scale reliable distributed system spanning multiple Edge Clusters and Data Centers. Specifically, my ongoing research looks at enabling multiple users, applications, and data analytics frameworks to co-exist and leverage Cloud resources while providing high performance execution and efficient resource utilization.
