Samyukta Yagati

I am a first-year Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley in RISELab. Previously, I was at MIT in the Parallel and Distributed Operating Systems (PDOS) group. I prefer to go by Samyu.

My interests are in distributed systems, privacy-preserving systems, and systems for machine learning.

A subset of things I do outside of work

  • Modular origami is a relatively new hobby. The pictured pieces are each composed of thirty separate modules, and are held together by interlocking paper pieces without string or glue.

  • I've been painting and drawing for a long time, and I draw and paint a variety of things, like portraits, figures, typography, abstract art. Lately I'm into sunset-scapes.
