About me: I am an Assistant Professor at IITK (since October 2017). I completed my Ph.D. from IIT Bombay in 2017. I worked in software industry for six years before joining Ph.D. at IIT Bombay.
Research: I love building stuff at the lowest layer of the software stack! My notion of systems starts with the layers below the applications till the architecture interfaces which includes operating systems, hypervisors, network stacks. Open source system software like the Linux Kernel, KVM/Xen hypervisors and architectural simulators are my research playground. I am also passionate about revisiting the architecture-OS interfaces to address performance and security concerns in an era of ever-evolving technology. More details regarding some of the projects are here.

If you are passionate about systems and want to discuss more, you can walk by my office or send me an email.
I am currently teaching CS730: Topics in Operating Systems.      [Course Page]
