@ The University of Edinburgh


PhD positions: I'm actively looking to recruit new PhD students for systems research. If you like to design and build computer systems then please send me your resume.


Since November 2016, I'm a faculty member in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, where I'm affliated with the Institute for Computing Systems Architecture (ICSA). I'm also a Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute (ATI). In the School of Informatics, I participate in two centers for Doctoral Training (CDT): Pervasive Parallelism and Data Science.

Before moving to the UK, I was an independent research group leader (2015-2016) in the (cfaed) Cluster of Excellence at TU Dresden, where I led the Parallel and Distributed Systems group.

I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science (2015) from the Systems group at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS). During my PhD, I’ve had fruitful internships/collaborations with Microsoft Research, IBM Research, Yahoo! Research and Bell Labs.

Prior to joining MPI-SWS, I worked as a member of technical staff at Adobe Systems (till the end of 2009) and in the HPC group (2008-2009) at IBM Research–India. Before that, I was a graduate student at IIT Kanpur.


My research interests lie in the broad area of computer systems including parallel and distributed systems, operating systems, "Big Data" systems/cloud computing, and storage systems. In the past, I've also worked on compilers for multicores, and high performance computing.
