I am a Ph.D. candidate and an IBM Ph.D. fellow at Rutgers University under the guidance of Professor Manish Parashar. I’ve received my M.S. degree from Rutgers University in Electrical & Computer Engineering. I’ve also received my undergraduate degrees from Rutgers School of Engineering with a B.Sc. in Electrical & Computer Engineering, and a second B.Sc. in Computer Science. I am a member of The Applied Software Systems Laboratory (TASSL), the NSF Cloud and Autonomic Computing (NSFCAC), and the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2).


My research interests are in parallel and distributed computing (HPC, grids, cloud computing, federated computing, software-defined environments, and advanced cyberinfrastructure (ACI)) to support large scale computational and data-enabled/driven science and engineering (CDS&E) applications, Big Data, and Internet of Things (IoT).


I have been working with IBM T.J. Watson Research Center on providing high performance computing as a service for science and engineering applications and deploying Docker containers across multiple clouds and data centers.
