Project Experience
 Voicemail Zimlet: Developed a zimlet (widget for Zimbra Email & Calendar) for Georgia Tech Telephony
services using J2EE technologies. This involved building a proxy for the voicemail server which handles user
authentication and session for voicemail management over HTTPS.
 Conferencing Via Calendars (ConCal): Developed a conferencing system using SIP servlets, Asterisk
which calls the attendee instead of attendee calling the conference bridge.

phone to another cell phone over Bluetooth.
 An Optimized Distributed Web Proxy Server: Designed and implemented a multi-threaded web proxy
server based on ‘Boss-Worker’ multi-threading model using PThreads. Communication with the servers was
optimized by sharing memory segments when server and proxy were on same machine. An RPC server was
also implemented to implement the image compression functionality intelligently.
 Tweaking BitTorrent to reduce Inter-AS Traffic: Research project on BitTorrent to reduce inter-AS
traffic. This project was implemented on BitTornado (Python).
