Education

I am currently pursuing my PhD in Computer Science at CMU. I received my B. Tech in Computer Science & Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, where I worked under Prof. Kamakoti Veezhinathan.

Research

I am broadly interested in the field of Computer Architecture. I am co-advised by Prof. Todd Mowry and Prof. Onur Mutlu. My current research focuses on designing efficient memory hierarchies.
