I am a Graduate Student at the University of California, San Diego in the Computer Science and Engineering Department. I have worked on a range of things from mobile computing, storage systems, kernels to network measurements! I now primarily work on measurement and I am advised by Geoff Voelker and Stefan Savage.

Inferring Persistent Internet Interdomain CongestionWorked on the issue of investigating persistent Internet interdomain congestion with CAIDA (Center forApplied Internet Data Analysis). Specifically, the goal was to investigate congestion that seemed recur-ring and persistent over sustained periods of time. As part of this work, we used active measurements toanalyze network congestion across various interdomain links on the Internet. [Paper]
A New Look at DMCA Section 512 ProcessThis work focussed on the Digital Millenium Copyright Act and the potential "chilling effects" that might arise from the DMCA Section 512 process which allows copyright holders to take down content which they believe infringes their copyright. The goal driven was to enable a data-driven analysis of this extra-judicial takedown provision thereby enable recommendations that are primarily based in solid data. As a first step towards this goal, we establish a framework to begin understanding the takedown process and its effect on the Internet. [Report]
NGS Performance InvestigationInvestigation into the performance of the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) software tool chain used by Bioinformatics group at UCSD for detecting variants in genomes which currently takes 12 - 14 days to complete. The goal was to analyze the software tool chain and find potential performance improvements. Built a model that was approximately 98% accurate for predicting the behavior of the tool chain, which helped identify potential areas to focus on for performance improvements. [Report]
Benchmarking FirefoxOSBenchmarking in constrained development environment, especially for low-level system code. Benchmarked a Firefox OS Developer Preview Phone which has an ARM based Qualcomm chipset. Wrote benchmarks, with which we got the base hardware characteristics, and then used to predict the performance of certain operations and present the measurements obtained for the actual performance.
SWAYAM CUBESAT Mission, COEPWorked on a CUBESAT standard satellite "Swayam", that was launched by ISRO in June 2016. I worked on the design and implementation of the Onboard Computer and was part of the Systems Engineering group as well. [Link]
