Amiya joined Research Computing as a Graduate Research Assistant in Jan 2015. After finishing his Ph.D. at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Purdue, he decided to continue working at RCAC as a Scientific Applications Analyst. As part of the Research Support team Amiya helps to detect, localize, and debug failures in HPC applications. He is also responsible for administration and performance evaluation of HPC clusters in the cloud.

Amiya's research focuses on the dependability issues in Mobile and Cloud Computing. More specifically, he worked on finding novel techniques for mitigating performance interference in public clouds. He also helped uncover several bugs in the Android framework. Amiya is actively seeking collaborators who is passionate about improving the reliability and security of large scale distributed systems.

When Amiya is not on the lookout for (software) bugs he enjoys posing as a shutter-bug himself. Samples of his creation can be found at his flickr page.
