I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park; co-advised by Amol Deshpande and Aravind Srinivasan. I also hold a Masters degree in Computer Science (2015) from University of Maryland, College Park, and a Bachelors degree in Computer Engineering (2011) from Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute, India.

Research Interests

I am interested in data management and data-intensive computing, with a particular focus on storage and query processing challenges in a dataset version control system. During the past years, I have been working on developing a platform to simplify and automate fundamental book-keeping operations in data science/analytics worflows, e.g., data collaboration and versioning, data provenance, and in-situ integration and search.
