Hi there, you have reached the personal web page of Rithik Sharma.

About Me

I am a first-year Ph.D. student at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC), advised by Tyler Sorensen. My research interests are in Programming Languages research, specifically Compilers and LLVM.

Before joining UCSC, I finished my undergrad in Computer Science and Engineering from India, and my thesis about extending LLVM's backend support for new architectures and language frontends for embedded boards to make electric vehicles more functional in Saarland, Germany, with the collaboration of The University of Saarland and HighTec Edv Systeme GmbH.

I also got accepted twice for Google Summer of Code 2020 and 2021 under the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure, where I worked on a loop safety compiler utility and the Clang static analyzer.

I am looking for more PL/Compiler-based research work. If you are interested in working with me, please reach out to me :)
