I am broadly interested in Compilers, Networks and Operating Systems. Currently, I am working on a project which focuses on compilation of domain specific languages to efficent software switches.

Recently, the software routers are taking the center stage of replacing the traditional middleboxes in networking for their relative flexibility in development, deployment, and maintenance. DSLs for programming software routers have become an attractive choice, but the challenge of achieving line-rate for different workloads and platforms still persists. Focusing towards the development of the right compiler framework for optimization could bridge this gap between flexibility and performance.

We address the problem of writing an ideal compiler for efficiently mapping a high-level protocol specification to the underlying target architecture. An ideal compiler should be able to automatically bridge the performance gap between compiler-generated code and hand-optimized code.
