I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley advised by Joseph Gonzalez and Prabal Dutta. I am broadly interested in systems for machine learning, machine learning for the edge, and Sky computing. I am affiliated with the Sky Computing Lab (previously RISE), Lab11, and Berkeley AI Research (BAIR).

I was an Intern with Google Brain and Cloud in summer 2022, and Amazon Science Core ML in 2021. Previously, I spent two wonderful years as a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research India, where I was advised by Prateek Jain, Harsha Vardhan Simhadri and Vivek Seshadri.


Here are some key projects I have co-created:
Star   POET : Neural Network training on edge devices
Star EdgeML : Neural Network inference on edge devices
Star   Skyplane : Fast data transfer between cloud object stores

Prior to this, I obtained a B.E. in Electronics and Communication Engineering from R.V. College of Engineering in 2017 (awarded University Gold Medal). During my undergraduate program, I worked with Prof. M.M. Nayak at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc).
