I am a PhD student specializing in Networking for Real-time Systems, advised by Prof. Sibin Mohan.

The goal of my research is to design safety-critical networks that are predictable and deterministic (hence safer), resilient to failures and cheaper (using commodity protocols and hardware). Examples of domains where my research is useful include : Automotive Networks, Industrial Control Systems, Power Grid (Substation) Networks and Aerospace Networks. Prior to Illinois, I obtained Masters and Bachelors degrees from UC San Diego and NIT/REC Tiruchirappalli.

I am interested collaborating with undergraduate/masters students particularly interested in embedded systems, so please do reach out to me if you are interested in working on projects together.

It has been rejected from RTSS'19, RTAS'20, EMSOFT'20 and ECRTS'19. The first version was written in Mid-Fall 2018, and a version with the current name and authors dates to Summer 2020. However, the authors make updates every few months, before putting it aside again.
