I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass Amherst. I am working with professor Prashant Shenoy in Laboratory for Advanced Software Systems. My research interests lie in the intersection of machine learning, edge computing, and distributed systems, with a focus on building systems for ML inference applications and understanding them through modeling, analysis, and experimentation.

I completed my Bachelor’s degree with honors from The Pennsylvania State University. I worked as an undergraduate researcher under the supervision of professor Bhuvan Urgaonkar. My undergraduate research focuses on modeling and analyzing the Amazon spot market for improving the cost-efficacy of cloud applications.
