About Me

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!
