Notes for Prospective Students

I am always on the lookout for motivated undergraduate and graduate students. Please check out my group’s website to learn more about my research interests.

Students at UCSB

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student at UCSB, I am just an email away. Please feel free to drop me an email if you want to discuss topics related to research, grad school, admissions, or life in general.

Students outside UCSB

If you are planning to apply to UCSB, you are doing the right thing. UCSB is one of the top public school in the US. Its academic community is characterized by a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration that is responsive to the needs of our multicultural and global society.

Undergraduate Students

I do sometimes work with undergraduate students outside UCSB. In current scenarios, I expect such participation to be remote. However, in the future, I expect to host students at UCSB. I prefer working with students who can commit to work with me for at least around one year. In the past, I have had undergraduate students work with me for more than one year and submit papers to tier-1 networking conferences, such as ACM SIGCOMM and USENIX NSDI. If you see yourself working hard for such longer durations, drop me an email.

Masters Students

The computer science department at UCSB is one of the most competitive and rewarding program. We admit few students (10-20) and many of them get supported as RA/TAs. I do not have any say in MS admissions. So, please don’t send me requests to review your profile and assess your chances of admissions. I might not be able to respond to such requests. If you already have an admit from UCSB, and are interested in working on a research project with me, just drop me a note.

Ph.D. Students

Please check out my group’s website to learn more about my research interests. I try my best to keep this page updated. You can find the list of my papers here.

If any of these topics interest you, please fill out this interest form. Filling out this form will take a lot of time and energy. If you put an effort to fill out the form, I will put my best effort to read it, and follow up with you.
