Hi! I’m Sankha. I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, advised by Prof. Jeff Foster. I work with the folks at the PLUM group. My research interests are broadly in the area of programming languages - dynamic languages, type systems and program verification.

Previously, I spent a couple of years at BrowserStack writing systems software for offering real mobile devices on the cloud and scalable distributed web service backends. Prior to that, I graduated with my Bachelors degree from Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur. I worked with Prof. Peter Thiemann for a summer during my undergrad on Transparent Object Proxies for JavaScript.

You will find most of side projects on my Github, a handful of which have been useful to some people. I used to contribute to Mozilla Firefox, many of my patches were to SpiderMonkey - the JavaScript engine.
