Résumé and CV (Jun 2015).

Me

My research interests are in the design and performance of Networked Systems.

I did my PhD at Georgia Tech, advised by Professor Nick Feamster. I also collaborated closely with Dr. Renata Teixeira.

Prior to joining Georgia Tech, I completed my MS in Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, advised by Professor C. M. Krishna. I obtained my Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology in Jaipur, India.
