Shoumik Palkar

I am a third year Ph.D. student at Stanford University, advised by Prof. Matei Zaharia. My research interests include performance in cloud computing, distributed systems, and computer networks.

I am affiliated with Stanford DAWN and the Infolab where I work on Weld, a novel interface for data analytics libraries which enables optimizations and fast code generation across libraries and frameworks such as NumPy and Spark. Weld is open source here.

In the Past

During the 2015-2016 academic year I was at MIT working in the PDOS Lab, and was supported by a Jacobs Presidential Fellowship. Before that, I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from UC Berkeley where I worked with Scott Shenker and Sylvia Ratnasamy in the NetSys Lab on E2, a scalable, high performance framework for NFV.
