I am currently a research scientist at Bell Labs, Stuttgart.

I completed my doctoral studies at MPI-SWS, where I worked in the Real-Time Systems group led by Björn Brandenburg. I completed my undergraduate studies in Computer Science at the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University in Hyderabad, India (2006 - 2010). Following this, I worked as a Linux kernel developer at CERN (2011 - 2012) in the Hardware and Timing section of the Beam Controls group. I worked with open-hardware timing systems for large-scale distributed real-time systems (designs of which are openly available at the Open Hardware Repository). I am currently a Linux kernel maintainer for the VME subsystem.

I organized an OS Reading Group at MPI-SWS for two years between 2013 and 2014, and maintain a reading list here for those interested in this area of research.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in real-time systems, operating systems, distributed systems and embedded systems. I am particularly interested in the design of robust operating systems.
