My areas of interest are Programming Languages, Compilers and Runtime Systems, Parallel Software Systems, and Computer Architecture.

I lead the PROgramming LanguageS and PARallel Systems (PROSPAR) research group. Our group works on ideas to help build efficient and correct software systems. You can read more about our group at the PROSPAR web page.

I am looking for motivated UG and PG students who are interested in research to join the PROSPAR group and work on the general area of programming languages and software systems. If you are an IITK student, feel free to stop by or email for discussions.
