Hi there, hello.

I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Syslab and Sampa groups at the University of Washington, advised by Tom Anderson, Irene Zhang, and Luis Ceze. I am broadly interested in designing efficient computer systems, and am particularly motivated by technologies with strong implications for social impact.

I am working towards fungible computation in data centers. Our goal is to execute applications interchangeably on different hardware platforms to reduce energy usage while meeting latency deadlines. To this end, I am building an orchestrator that schedules computation interchangeably on CPUs and FPGAs.

In my first year, I worked on the original design and prototypes of μTVM, a deep learning framework for resource-constrained bare-metal devices, which has since been integrated at OctoML.

Before UW, I had some incredible experiences at Microsoft Research India, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, where I dabbled in computer architecture and real-time systems research.

I received my bachelors degree in computer science from BITS Pilani.
