B.Tech, IIT Kanpur

I am a postdoc at AMPLab, UC Berkeley working with Ion Stoica, Sylvia Ratnasamy and Scott Shenker. Prior to coming to UC Berkeley, I completed my PhD at UIUC where I worked with the very awesome duo of P. Brighten Godfrey and Matthew Caesar.

At UC Berkeley, I am investigating new directions on analyzing massive datasets, with a focus on low latency (interactive) queries and dynamic datasets. With Sylvia and Scott, I continue to work on interesting networking problems, most recent ones primarily on scheduling and congestion control in datacenter networks.

I was awarded the 2012 UIUC Rambus Research Fellowship (for outstanding performance in computer science and engineering research), the 2010 UIUC Wang-Chung research award (for excellence in research), and was listed in Spring 2010 list of teachers ranked as excellent by their students (for excellence in teaching; Jeff Erickson’s undergraduate algorithms course).
