Postdoctoral Appointee

Argonne National Laboratory

I am a Postdoctoral Appointee in the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory since May 2018. I am currently part of the ARGO project aimed at building an Operating System and Runtime Stack for Exascale machines.

My research area is High Performance Computing (HPC) with a focus on energy efficiency; also I have spent some time looking at performance variability and reproducibility. I'm particularly interested in designing adaptive runtime energy optimization methods that do not degrade performance.

Previously, I was a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science department at UNC-Chapel Hill and a Research Assistant at Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI). My thesis "Runtime Methods to Improve Energy Efficiency in Supercomputing Applications" [thesis] [slides] was completed under the direction of Dr. Allan Porterfield and Prof. Jan Prins.

Before that, I have worked as a Systems Engineer at Infosys Labs, Bangalore. I have a Masters in Computer Science from UNC Chapel Hill and B.E. in Computer Science Engineering from SDM College of Engineering & Technology, Dharwad under Visveswaraya Technological University, Belgaum.
