Brief Bio

I am an assistant professor in the ECE department at UIUC, with an affiliate appointment in the CS department. I completed my PhD in August 2018 from UC Berkeley, where I was advised by Prof. Sylvia Ratnasamy and Prof. Scott Shenker. I spent the following year as a post-doc at MIT, working with Prof. Mohammad Alizadeh and Prof. Hari Balakrishnan. I received my bachelors degree in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, India in 2012.

I am broadly interested in computer systems and networking.
