Hello!

I am Maheswaran Sathiamoorthy, and I was a PhD student at Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Southern California. I worked with Prof. Bhaskar Krishnamachariand Prof. Alex Dimakis. I got my PhD in 2013 and I now work with a Silicon valley company.


My Resume

Research Interests Coded Storage for the Cloud and Vehicular Networks

My broad interests are in the intersection of large scale distributed storage systems and networking. My thesis is on "Optimizing Distributed Storage in Cloud Environments".

About

I did my B.Tech(H) in Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, from 2004 to 2008 after which I came to USC for PhD. The first two years were mostly spent doing coursework. Below are a list of courses that I have taken at USC.

And by the way, I was the Teaching Assistant for Wireless and Mobile Networks Design and Laboratory course (EE579) in Spring 2012. Here is the site I made for the final project presentations.
