My interests lie broadly in networks and distributed systems. I am currently
working on packet relay across address realms in TRIAD, a NAT-based approach
to scaling the Internet.
'96 - present
Stanford University, Stanford, CA.
Ph.D. Computer Science,
Research Advisor: Prof. David R. Cheriton.
'92 - '96
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, India.
Bachelor of Technology, Computer Science and Engineering
(GPA: 9.71 on 10)
Extensive programming experience in C, C++, Perl, Pascal, Prolog, LISP etc.
and classes in Computer Networks, Distributed Systems, Cryptography and
Computer Security, Visualization, Operating
Systems, Computer Graphics, Artificial Intelligence, Compilers, Operations
Research and Database Systems.
6/99 - 9/99:
Intern at Lucent Technologies (Bell Labs)
in Murray Hill, New Jersey with the Network Software Research Group.
I worked on content-based (layer 7) switching, including an architecure
for a layer 7 switch, and an implementation in software.
6/98 - 8/98:
Intern at Cisco Systems in San Jose, California with the IOS
Multicast group. I implemented the PGM reliable multicast protocol in
the ns network simulator, and used the implementation to characterize
and find a solution for the problem of multiple retransmissions for a
single network loss.
6/97 - 9/97:
Intern at Microsoft Corporation at Redmond, Washington with a Windows
NT development group. As a Software Development Engineer (SDE) Intern, I was
part of a group working on NT security to allow safe execution of code
downloaded off the Internet.
7/95 - 4/96:
Worked on Senior Thesis titled Efficient Radiosity-based Illumination
Solutions under the guidance of Prof. Sharat Chandran. We proposed
a new form factor algorithm to reduce aliasing inherent in the basic hemicube
method without much additional cost.
4/95 - 7/95:
Intern at Silicon Automation Systems at Bangalore, India.
As part of my internship,
I contributed to the modification of the design of data structures in a
VLSI design package. This involved understanding and modifying C++ code
to make the classes more efficient both computationally and with
respect to space.
