About Me

I am a fifth-year CSD Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. Justine Sherry. I do research on computer networks, with a focus on Congestion Control Algorithms (CCAs) and their increasingly complex interactions. My current research investigates the fairness properties of CCAs in various settings and deployments, so we can make informed decisions on what CCAs we should be using and where.

Before I delved into the mysteries of the Internet, I applied Machine Learning techniques to speed up software engineering pipelines as a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research India. Our work resulted in a number of publications at top venues and won the Jay Lepreau Best Paper Award at USENIX OSDI 2018.

In my spare time I dabble in archery and fix holes in my drywall. Completely unrelated, I promise.
