  • PhD Advisor: Gene Cooperman


Twinkle Jain is a PhD student in the systems and networks program at Northeastern University, advised by Professor Gene Cooperman. Jain’s research is focused on providing resilience in the distribution environment using a user-level transparent checkpoint-restore technique. Prior to joining Northeastern, Jain earned her Master’s degree from M.B.M Engineering College in India.

What are the specifics of your graduate education (thus far)?

After receiving Master’s degree from India, I joined Northeastern in Fall’16 for my second Master in Computer Science. I decided to switch to Ph.D. after one year of MS.

What are your research interests?

Resilience in the High-performance computing world has gained a lot of interest in recent years. My research focuses around providing resilience in the distributed environment using a user-level transparent checkpoint-restore technique.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

I’d like to provide a transparent network with a fault tolerance mechanism for high-performance computing.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

I find the ability to checkpoint and restore user application in user-space (without root privilege) most interesting.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

Along with improving my research skills, I am looking forward to solving the problem mentioned above.
