I am a first-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois, at Urbana Champaign . My advisor is Prof. Indranil Gupta .
My research interests are primarily in distributed systems. Recently, I have been working on providing adaptive scaling in multi-tenant stream processing systems such as Apache Storm.
Before coming to UIUC, I completed my undergraduate education at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, NUST in Pakistan.
When I am not working, I like to spend my time reading. Check out my ever-growing reading list for 2016 here!
Current Research Project
Creating a version of Apache Storm that is elastic.
Checkpointing in Apache Spark
Investigating methods to improve the performance of checkpointing in Apache Spark.
