Dept. of Computer Science, Stony Brook University
Seeking Summer 2018 Software Engineering Internship

Interests: Distributed Systems, Machine Learning, Algorithms, Cloud, Security, and Robotics.

Welcome. My name is Ankit Aggarwal. I am a Master's student (2018) at Stony Brook University (SUNY) in New York, majoring in Computer Science. As a member of the File systems and Storage Lab (FSL) under the guidance of Prof. Erez Zadok, I am working on auto-tuning traditional and distributed file systems for different workloads using Machine Learning. Also, I am working as a Graduate Assistant (Web Development) at Stony Brook University.

I like to solve problems with code and collaboration. I am interested in the areas of Distributed Systems, Machine Learning, Algorithms, Cloud, Security, and Robotics. I can code in C, C++, Python, JavaScript, Java or PHP on Linux/Windows/Android/IoT platforms. Also, I support multiple open source initiatives (GitHub).

Prior to my graduate studies, I worked full-time for 2 years as a Software Engineer at the Chief Technology Office of Wipro Technologies in Bangalore, India.

I completed my undergraduate engineering degree from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (University of Delhi) in 2015. During my time as an undergraduate student, I completed my Research Intern and worked part-time for 2 years as a Software Developer at mLabs Research in New Delhi, India.

Outside of work, I like competitive programming, photography, jogging, music, and giving back to the community through volunteering and mentorship initiatives. I'm a movie buff and occasionally I play guitar.
