I work in the area of Blockchain, specifically in the Linux Open Source Project --- Hyperledger Fabric. I am one of the contributors of ledger component in the Hyperledger Fabric system.
Other than fabric's ledger, I am working on threads like performance benchmarking and optimizing Hyperledger fabric, optimizing time taken for node bootstrapping, admission control on fabric cluster to mitigate overload situations, etc...
I completed the M.Tech + Ph.D. dual degree program from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay in June 2016. My Ph.D. thesis was on the performance modeling and optimizing virtual machine live migration, one of the core techniques for managing a data center. I received the B.E degree from Madras Institute of Technology, India. My research interests span the areas of resource management in cloud & software-defined networks, operating systems, elastic data analytics platforms, micro-services, blockchain technology, machine learning, and performance modeling of software systems. Apart from that, I am also interested in various activities like rock climbing, long-distance cycling, hiking, and skating.
