I am a PhD student working at PACE Lab under the guidance of Dr. V. Krishna Nandivada. My research interests are program analysis and verification, and parallelization.
I obtained my B.Tech degree at Andhra University. I joined for M.Tech programme in July, 2013 at IIT Madras and converted to PhD in dual degree mode. Prior to joining IIT Madras, I worked as a Software Engineer at Hewlett Packard, Chennai.
- Current Research : Analyzing Java source code to identify refactoring opportunities and performing automatic refactoring based on the results of the analyses. Currently working on the same for Replace Conditional with Polymorphism refactoring technique.
- Research Interests
- Program Analysis : Analyzing programs for refactoring and optimization, to improve program understanding and
- Program Verification : Inferring the specifications like invariants, contracts/annotations from a program and use
them to verify the correctness of the program.
- Parallelization : Parallelizing the serial programs/analyses by using efficient techniques to gain maximum parallelism
with less overhead.
- Refactoring Opportunities for Replacing Type Code
