Prashanth ThinakaranGraduate Student at Penn State

Education

I am currently pursuing my PhD in Computer Science at Penn State and a member of HPCL where I work with Prof. Mahmut Kandemir and Prof. Chita Das. I did my Bachelors in Information Technology at Anna University and I was also a Part-time Research Trainee of High Performance Computing Group at WARFT.

Research

I am deeply enthralled in optimizing the cross layer system stack performance of HPC and Cloud based applications, knobs ranging across Computer Architecture to Operating Systems.
