I am a doctoral research scholar, working under the guidance of V. Krishna Nandivada at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras), India. Here, I am associated to the Programming Languages, Architecture and Compilers Education (PACE) lab since it opened in August 2012 at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I joined the department in July 2012 as an MS scholar, and eventually converted to PhD in January 2014.
My area of research is "Programming Languages and Compilers". Apart from my research work on synchronization optimizations for OpenMP parallel programs, I am also actively involved as a lead developer in the project IMOP, a framework to develop source-to-source transformations and source code analyses for OpenMP programs written in C.

I hail from Bhopal, the capital city of Madhya Pradesh, India. Bhopal is famous as one of the greenest cities in India, and is also called as "The City of Lakes". Nature knows my love for Herself, and thus my destiny has brought me here to IIT Madras, which too is situated in a dense green forest.
I love eating good food. I am a vegetarian (with an exception to eggs), and I like various cuisines, ranging from a large varieties of Indian dishes to Chinese, Continental (especially Italian), Mexican, and surely those others which I haven't yet tried. I like listening to good music, travelling to interesting (mostly nearby) places, reading and sleeping on fiction novels, and riding cycles and motored bikes. I believe in social networking, but I am not active on Facebook since last few years. I prefer moving out and meeting friends personally, whenever free.
