Broadly, my research is in the *design and implementation of scalable, efficient and resilient networked systems*. Presently, I am working on: - **Datacenter transport**: Flexible high-performance transport protocol offload to programmable network devices. - **ML preprocessing acceleration**: In-network data ingestion acceleration for large-scale ML training. - **Scaling client-local NVM filesystems**: Co-designing distributed filesystems with in-network replication, coordination and coherence services for scalability. At Google, I am a member of the [Systems Research Group](https://cloud.google.com/blog/topics/systems/google-creates-new-systems-research-group) advised by [Dr. Kimberly Keeton](https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=wR_tv-kAAAAJ&hl=en). My research is on: - **Tiered Memory Management**: Understanding the impact of swapping on application performance at datacenter scale.
