Adhitha Dias


I am currently looking for internship opportunities, for summer 2023, related to compilers, programming languages and high-performance computing, preferably research-oriented.

I am a 2nd year graduate student at Purdue ECE. I am broadly interested in compilers, programming languages and high-performance computing. My current research focuses on compile-time optimizations for sparse tensor algebra computations.
