I work on systems that enable easier host-device coordination for performance and reliability improvements.
My latest project, Shimmer, allows easy shim layers to generate and provide lifetime hints that improve the performance of log-structured systems on top of SSDs with no change to applications or operating systems.
After completing my PhD. in computer science from UC Santa Cruz, I am currently a software engineer at Microsoft, working on Azure storage.


In Santa Cruz since 2016, I was born and brought up Pune, India. I enjoy outdoor activities, camping, hiking, photography, watching birds and other critters among other things.
