I am a third year PhD student in the Dept. of Computer Science at Duke University. I am working under the guidance of Prof. Alvin Lebeck. My interests broadly lie in the field of computer architecture. My current research focuses on data parallel architectures, specifically designing and optimizing conventional web based workloads to run more efficiently on these accelerators.
I also got my Masters degree in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering here at Duke. I spent the summer of 2011 working at Swype in Seattle, and both the company and city are experiences I will cherish forever.
Prior to Duke I spent an amazing four years at Samsung India working on their native Linux platform. My work at Samsung was primarily aimed towards graphics optimizations for the various chipsets the platform ran on. As a part of the UI framework team, I also spent the better part of 2 years working at Samsung South Korea hacking away at the entire graphics stack from GTK to the EGL infrastructure to the 2D raster backend in pixman.
I completed my Bachelors in Electronics and Communication Technology at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee, a beautiful city surrounded by the Himalayas.
