I am a PhD student working in the area of distributed systems at the Distributed and Object Systems Lab, Dept. of CSE, IIT Madras under Prof. D. Janakiram. As part of my research, I have worked on peer-to-peer semantic search and cloud-assisted peer-to-peer search. My current interest is in addressing challenges related to efficient usage of cloud resources by large-scale distributed applications. I am also interested in cloud technologies like distributed programming models and stream processing systems.
I find distributed systems exciting and am thrilled every time I see an interesting distributed system implementation of mine running. I view real research as a serious pursuit for discovering and creating knowledge and as a companion for innovations which make life better.
