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.
