About

Hi! I’m Rahul. I'm an MEng student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I majored in Course 6-2 (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) as an undergrad. During my time at MIT, I have directed DevOps for HackMIT, helped run the MIT IEEE/ACM student chapter, and TA'd for 6.006 (Introduction to Algorithms).

Research

  • From 2017-2018, I worked in the Robot Locomotion Group with Professor Russ Tedrake. I worked on constrained footstep planning through the use of mixed-integer convex optimization, implementing a footstep optimizer with the Drake framework here.
  • Since 2019, I have been doing research with Professors Tim Kraska and Malte Schwarzkopf, working on Tuplex - open source here.
    • In 2020-2021, I pursued this research as a SuperUROP under the MIT EECS Undergraduate Research and Innovation Scholar grant.
    • In June 2021, we published this work in SIGMOD '21 - see the paper here.
  • I am also currently doing my MEng research with Professor Julian Shun, working on parallel data structures.
