Portrait of Kaushik Rajan

Kaushik Rajan

Principal Researcher


I am a researcher in the systems group at Microsoft Research India. I am broadly interested in the areas of programming languages, database systems and distributed systems. Over the last few years my focus has been on big-data systems where we employ techniques from all these areas to solve systems challenges.

I did my PhD from the Indian Institute of Science where I worked with Prof R. Govindarajan.
