I am broadly interested in Distributed Systems, Operating Systems, and Cloud Computing.
- At University of Utah, I am gearing up to work on low latency and multitenant cloud storage system. Traditional techniques to provide isolation among tenants are too costly and can't be used for such a system. So, our group is looking for novel ways to solve the problem.
- At IIT Delhi, my research focus was on compiler-based optimizations for software-based packet processing. We worked on optimizing the compilers so that Domain Specific Languages(like P4) can be used more effectively. I was a part of Vertecs Paper Reading group; details can be found here.
- At IIT Bombay, I worked on vLab: Managing and Provisioning VMs for Labs, where the aim was to run a large number of virtual machines on commodity hardware. I designed and implemented the system from scratch, and also analyzed the impact of various parameters on VM boot time when images were stored on distributed object store setup over a cluster of commodity machines.
