My areas of interest are Programming Languages, Software
Engineering, Compilers, Embedded and Real-Time systems.
I am currently working with the PLaSS group under the supervision
of Dr. Michael Bond. My broad area of work
involves developing efficient software-only dynamic program analyses for detecting concurrency correctness issues in
multi-threaded programs. My work focuses on developing analyses to detect atomicity violations and data races in
I interned at Google Inc., Mountain View, during the
summer of 2013 with the Java Platform Team. My work involved developing a precise dynamic data race detector for
Java programs in the Hotspot VM. The primary goal of the work was to have a working data race detector with minimal
overhead to target production systems.

About Me | less
I have worked as a software developer at Wipro Technologies for more than three years (August 2005 to August
2008). I was involved in software development in the Unified Communications and Automotive Software domain.
I have also worked on a research project from September 2008 to August 2011 at IIT Kharagpur during my MS. The
project was sponsored by General Motors India. My work was on developing automated and efficient regression test
selection approaches for automotive software.

- I am a GNU Emacs fan. I have shared some of my favorite customizations on
Github: my dotfile.
- I have shared an
template that I have used for my candidacy proposal at Ohio State, since no LaTeX template seems to be
available from the graduate school web pages as of April 2015. The setup seems current as of April 2015.
