About Me

Shivam Trivedi

  My name is Shivam Trivedi, and I am currently an undergraduate student at Purdue University, majoring in Network Engineering Technology. I am a Student Systems Administrator at the Rosen Center for Advanced Computing, which is Purdue University's research (super)computing arm. Right now, I am working on a Bro Network Monitoring Cluster, which will improve network monitoring on Purdue Research Computing's 400Gbps internet link. At my job, I work on over 2500 servers, including Conte, one of the fastest university-owned computers in the world. I am also a teaching assistant in the Computer and Information Technology for CNIT240, the introductory course for Network Engineering Students.
  Apart from the Bro project at my work, I am trying to write a blog which chronicles my experience with experimenting new technology. I am also working on AutoInstall, a piece of software which aims to automatically install and configure various Open Source softwares on a single machine.
  During my free time, I love hiking, photography, and watching college sports. I love working on personal projects in my free time, most of which are hosted on my beloved server that I run in my room.
