I completed my PhD from MIT in June 2016 advised by Prof. Gregory Wornell. I also have the good fortune of working with Dr. Emina Soljanin from Bell Labs. Previously, I completed a Dual degree (B.Tech+ M.Tech) in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay, where I was advised by Prof. Abhay Karandikar.I am interested in developing techniques to use redundancy to reduce delay in the cloud. My favorite tools are probability, stochastic processes and learning.
