I am a second year CS PhD student at Boston University. My advisor is Professor Abraham Matta.
I received my BS in Computer Science from University of Minnesota, Twin City in 2019.
During my undergraduate studies, I explored ideas in distributed stream processing systems, especially Apache Flink, by studying metrics and understand the involved design decisions. I got tremendous help and advice from Professor Abhishek Chandra, Professor Jon Weissman and Dr. Albert Jonathan. I really apreciate it!

Research and Interests

My research interests are mainly on network and distributed systems. Currently, I am studying migrating and scheduling containers and Pods on Kubernetes. And at the same time we are developing novel architectures for deep neural networks while taking privacy into consideration.
