I am a final-year Ph.D. student studying Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. At CMU, I work with Prof. Garth Gibson and I am affiliated to the Parallel Data Lab (PDL).

My current research is on building data-intensive systems for scalable computing and storage infrastructure for next-generation technologies; specifically, I am interested in:

  • Emerging confluence of file systems and databases for building highly scalable storage systems for high-performance computing (HPC) and cloud computing.
  • Novel systems for future storage technologies such as shingled disks (with a strong interest in extending this to new CPU and interconnect technology)
Generally, I am interested in experimental computer systems driven by challenges posed by the interaction of storage, distribution and computation in real-world systems.
