I was a graduate student in the Computer Science Department of The University of Texas at Dallas from fall 2002 – fall 2004. I received my Master of Science in Computer Science (Research Track) at The University of Texas at Dallas in December 2004. I am a member of the research group at ALPS Lab under Professor Dr. Gopal Gupta. My graduate thesis was in the area of software quality assurance. I have published related papers in the ACM CASES 2004 and ICDCIT 2004 conferences. I worked as fall 2004 intern at Nokia Dallas Research Center. At Nokia, I was responsible for performance analysis of TCP optimization algorithms in wireless data networks (EDGE-GPRS). I was a summer 2004 intern in the Product Development department of Sabre Holdings. At Sabre, my team was responsible for assessing and improving the software development processes to increase productivity, quality, and to reduce cost of quality assurance process.

Qualcomm CDMA Technologies (QCT)


Since Jan 2005, I am working at Qualcomm (3G CDMA) in San Diego, California. Qualcomm has been named to Fortune Magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work for in America" (7th consecutive year of recognition - 2005).





My Graduate Thesis Project: A Framework For Reuse Of Software Binaries

I developed a framework and tool to check software for safety properties without accessing source code. The tool can automatically detect programming bugs without accessing source code. The analysis is performed in the disassembled code obtained from the executable code. This tool helps in increasing software reliability, enforcing software quality, increasing software reuse, and reducing the time to market for new software (embedded) systems. The tool can also detect null pointer dereferencing bugs without running the program. This is necessary to ensure software quality of proprietary software before re-using code in other systems. I have published papers in the ACM CASES 2004 and ICDCIT 2004 conferences.


My Undergrad Thesis Project: A Conservative Garbage Collector For The C Programming Language



2nd Summer School In Computational Logic - UT Dallas (I helped organize this event)



May all live happily and peacefully,

May all enjoy good health,

May all see auspiciousness,

May none experience distress,

May peace prevail everywhere.
