I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at
University of California, Berkeley.
I am working with Dr. Natacha Crooks on designing efficient fault-tolerant systems
with a key focus on handling malicious attacks.
Previously, I was awarded Ph.D. degree at
Department of Computer Science,
University of California, Davis.
I also serve as the Lead Architect for ResilientDB, which I founded
during my Ph.D at UC Davis.
I was awarded Best Graduate Researcher Award by UC Davis for my thesis, titled,
Resilient and Scalable Architecture for Permissioned Blockchain Fabrics.
During my Ph.D. I also authored a book titled,
Fault-Tolerant Distributed Transactions on Blockchain, which was published by Morgan & Claypool as part of Synthesis Lectures on Data Management
(also available now with Springer).
Prior to moving to UC Davis, I earned couple of master degrees. I was awarded Master of Science in Computer Science by Department of Computer Science at Purdue University in December 2017. During my time at Purdue, I also worked with Prof. Suresh Jagannathan in the domain of Distributed Systems and Programming Languages, and was associated with the PurPL and SIAM.
In more distant past, I worked with Dr. V. Krishna Nandivada at Indian Institute of Technology Madras. At IIT Madras, I was awarded Master of Science (Research) from the Department of CSE. My masters thesis led to several publications and was titled as Analyzing Recursive Task Parallel Programs..
