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.


I’m a systems researcher: I love to design and build systems!
A common goal of my research is to build computer systems that are efficient, reliable, and secure. As an experimental computer systems researcher, I work at the intersection of operating systems, distributed systems, storage systems, system security, "Big Data" systems, and cloud computing. In the past, I've also worked on compilers for multicores, and high performance computing.
