Biography

I am currently a masters student at the University of Arizona. My advisor is Dr. Chris Gniady. My research interests include distributed computing systems and novel networking protocols. I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science with a strong Mathematics minor in 2014 in India. I then worked as a Systems Engineer at Infosys Ltd, developing web and windows applications as a Dot Net Developer.

My current research focuses on Distributed Computing and Computer Networks. It involves integrating an emerging network architecture with the popular distributed computing platform that will provide robust, efficient, and scalable foundation for Big Data computing. I also worked with Dr. Richard Snodgress as a Chief Programmer for a team developing and designing the software infrastructure of the largest telescope in the world.
