I graduated with Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the CS department of IIT, where I was a member of SPEAR (Systems for Performance, Energy, and Resiliency) Group and Prof. Zhiling Lan was my advisor. My research interets are parallel and distributed systems & high performance computing. Specifically, I'm interested in resource management, batch scheduling, network and storage, facinated by the quest of improving overall system performance.
