About me

I joined Rutgers in January 2013, after obtaining my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania. I am from Bangalore, India. I am interested in building efficient, robust and secure software systems. Primary research interests are in hardware-software interfaces spanning programming languages, compilers, runtimes and computer architecture. I love working on the entire computing stack ranging from hardware modifications, operating system enhancements, compiler optimizations and programming language design to build robust systems. I have been awarded the Google Research Award and the Intel Corporation Gift in 2014 for my research on verified compilers and memory safety respectively. In January 2015, I received the NSF CAREER Award. For more details, see my research group's page.

I love racquet sports. I play squash three or four times a week. I also read a lot of non-technical books. Inspired by Adam Chilpala's book log, a log of the books I have recently read is available here.


I generally support one or two charity organizations every year that are currently performing amazing work that ameliorates the condition of the human race. Kindly consider supporting Doctors Without Borders and Association for India's Development's Eureka Project.
