Anil K Yelam

PhD Student at UC San Diego



I’m a first year Computer Science PhD student at UC San Diego advised by Alex Snoeren. I’m also a member of Systems and Networking group, where my current work focuses on understanding the effects of various network configurations on the power consumption in data centers. My research interests broadly lie in distributed systems and networking.


I received my bachelors degree from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in 2014. I spent the next four years working at Microsoft as a Software Engineer in Azure SQL Databases team, developing services that support SQL databases and SQL Server VMs on Microsoft Azure.

On a personal note

I grew up in a remote village in Southern India where I went to primary school. Since then, I’ve moved around quite often, both in and outside India, starting from Guntur (2006-08), Hyderabad (2008-10), Kharagpur (Undergrad, 2010-14), Belgrade (Microsoft Serbia, 2014-16), Seattle (Microsoft Redmond, 2016-18) and San Diego (UC San Diego, 2018-present). I’m an avid reader and I like literary fiction - García Márquez is my favorite. Sports-wise, I love (and play!) Tennis.
