About

Hi! I’m Rahul. I'm a junior at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, studying Course 6-2 (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science). Check out my coursework here! I am passionate about anything and everything relating to technology.

In my free time, I like to work on personal projects and write about them on my blog. In the past, I have directed DevOps for HackMIT and helped run the MIT IEEE/ACM student chapter.

I am currently doing research with Professor Tim Kraska in the Data System and AI Lab, working on Tuplex. In the summer of 2018, I worked as a software engineering intern on the infrastructure team at Quora. This past summer, I worked as a software engineering intern on the marketdata and tools/compilers teams at Jane Street Capital.

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, just a couple minutes away from the Johnson Space Center. I graduated from Clear Lake High School as Salutatorian of the Class of 2017. During my time in high school, I was invited to the White House Science Fair in 2015 and 2016. I also competed in the USA Math and Computing Olympiads. In addition, I was the principal cellist of the CLHS Orchestra and played in the Texas All State Orchestras (2015, 2016, 2017).

In my free time, I love reading just about any book I can get my hands on (check out my Goodreads) and watching movies and TV shows. Some of my favorites include the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Zootopia, and The Office. I also love the NBA; in particular, the Houston Rockets.
