Dr. Soham Sinha is a systems software engineer and researcher at Nvidia. His research focuses on time-critical systems software design. He currently works on Nvidia's system design and real-time performance for the Holoscan embedded computing platform. In his doctoral thesis, he proposed a new design and implementation of a centralized multicore vehicle operating system, DriveOS. He has previously worked on real-time task scheduling algortihms, progress-aware predictable program executation, predictable I/O and virtualized real-time systems. He also dabbled in performance of cloud-storage services and enterprise-scale software.

(The above para is for the Internet crawler bots. I am not really a fan of writing in third person about me.)
I completed my PhD from the Department of Computer Science at Boston University (BU) under the guidance of Prof. Rich West (BU had been one of the top 5 US schools and top 10 universities in the world, in the embedded and real-time systems research area for the five years leading up to 2022 when I graduated). Prof. Paul Lu and Prof. Di Niu advised me for Master of Science in Computing Science at the University of Alberta. I did my Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science and Technology from IIEST, Shibpur (formerly BESU) where Prof. Manas Hira introduced me to the interesting bits of CS. I also interned at Google (Cambridge, MA, USA) and Intel (Austin, TX, USA) in two summers of my PhD studies, and worked at Ericsson (Kolkata, WB, India) for two years.

I love writing code for the fun of it. I also like writing in general, especially in my native language Bengali. I have keen interest in music (of different kinds, but mostly contemporary Bengali songs, folk, and a bit of psychedelic Rock), economics, politics and reading books.

a small note: my accomplishments are, in part, due to a collective effort of the people and the groups that I have worked with, the larger society, and luck.
another note: none of my former and current employers are responsible for any content on this website. all opinions here are my own.
