Research Interests:

My research revolves around understanding different aspects of communication in parallel and distributed systems. I am interested in computer networks and parallel computing. Very recently, I have become very interested in several aspects of Bioinformatics.
An old research page that is no longer updated but contains resources useful for students is here.


A list of my publications is available here.
