I am a PhD student in Computer Science at UC Irvine, where I am advised by Nalini Venkatasubramanian and part of the Distributed Systems Middleware group. My goal is to develop machine learning based tools and middleware for real-world domains to provide efficiency, robustness, and reliability. Specifically, my research has been focused on two broad themes: (1) smart communities, edge computing and IoT, and (2) time-series analytics and ML for enterprise systems.

Before coming to UC Irvine, I graduated from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani in 2016 with a Masters in Mathematics and a Bachelors in Computer Science. For my Master's Thesis, I worked with Maitreya Natu and Vaishali Sadaphal at Tata Research (TRDDC) Pune, on time-series forecasting and alert management for enterprise data centers.

In my free time I enjoy soccer, scuba-diving, and photography, amongst other things.
