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. 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. As part of my research, I have worked on peer-to-peer semantic search and cloud-assisted peer-to-peer search.
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.
