@ The University of Edinburgh


PhD positions: I'm actively looking to recruit new PhD students for systems research: parallel and distributed systems, operating systems, and storage systems. If you like to design and build computer systems then please send me your resume. Please include links to your past work, including project report/blog and corresponding source code.

Latest work


I'm a faculty member in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. I'm affliated with the Institute for Computing Systems Architecture (ICSA).

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, 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.

My full publication list is available here.
