What are the specifics of your graduate education (thus far)?
During my under-graduation, I was working in the field of Embedded System and Robotics, and slowly I transitioned towards computer systems in general.
What are your research interests in a bit more detail? Is your current academic/research path what you always had in mind for yourself, or has it evolved somewhat? If so, how/why?
My current research focuses on finding applications of checkpointing in program testing. I was always interested in designing and developing efficient computer systems, from a small embedded chip to a high-performance supercomputer system.
What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?
I am experimenting to find unconventional applications and limits of software checkpointing.
What aspect of what you do is most interesting/fascinating to you? What aspects of your research (findings, angles, problems you’re solving) might surprise others?
System software bridges the gap between computer hardware and applications running on it. By improving the performance of just a part of a system can improve the performance of every software worldwide. This thought will keep on driving me in my research journey.
What are your research/career goals, going forward?
I strive to make an impact in the industry by finding applications of my research.
