Shivaram Venkataraman


About

I am a fourth year graduate student in the Computer Science Department at UC Berkeley. I am a part of the AMPLab and I am advised by Ion Stoica and Mike Franklin.

My research interests are centered around the design of storage systems and analytics platforms for big-data applications.

In 2009, I completed my Masters at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked in the Systems Research Group, under the guidance of Prof. Roy Campbell. Before that I worked as a Software Engineer at Google, Bangalore for three years and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, India.
