I am a second year Master's student in the Computer Science
Department at Carnegie Mellon University.
I am fortunate to be advised by
My current research focuses on Distributed Machine Learning, both in theory and practice.
Before joining CMU, I spent 4 wonderful years ('10-'14) as an undergrad at IIT Bombay.
Outside of academics, I'm passionate about basketball and music.
[Jan 04 '16] I'm on a 6-month long internship at Rocket Fuel.
[Dec 16 '15] Arxiv version of our paper on Data Driven Resource Allocation
for Machine Learning is out. Read it
[Dec 14 '15] I have successfully defended my Master's thesis!
