Hi Vishal,

Glad you're interested in LLVM!

If one of your professors has contact info of Aditya Kumar, I think it's
better for both you and him if you ask him for his e-mail address. That way
you can CC him here because he's the best person to help you and guide you.

> current project mentor. I've read through the LCTES, 2014 paper and was

> MergeSimilarFunctions. I went through the slides of LLVM Dev Meeting, 2013
> describing the merge similar functions idea and also watched the video of
> LLVM Dev Meeting, 2018 elaborating the process of Porting MergeFunctions to
> ThinLTO. Both the references helped me to get a rough idea of design and
> how to proceed with the project. I've also begun going through the 5
> patches pertaining to the project and also skimmed through the llvm-dev
> mailing lists regarding MergeFunctions.  I drafted a proposal with my
> current understanding of the project and submitted it through the GSoC

> *About Me*
> As an undergraduate student, I have studied the Compiler Design course and
> Compiler Design Laboratory, supervised by Dr. Vineeth Paleri and have
> secured an "S" in the Laboratory course. In the lab, we have built a
> compiler for a new language called Object-Oriented Experimental Programming
> Language (OEXPL)[1]. During my final year, I have worked on a
> Continue-After-Error mode for AddressSanitizer in LLVM. As a prerequisite,
> I have built a front-end for the EXPL language supporting various features
> of the language. I have also built a pass for Global Common Sub-Expression
> Elimination in LLVM. My work relating to the final year project will be
> published after some necessary extensions within the scope of the project.
> The project has been supervised by Dr. UnniKrishnan from IIT Palakkad,
> India and Dr. K. Murali Krishnan from NIT Calicut, India. Dr. UnniKrishnan
> is in touch with the GSoC project mentor, Aditya Kumar. I have a thorough
> understanding of LLVM IR and have good experience in programming with C and
> C++. I am also familiar with SSA representation and x86 Assembly. Some of
> my works can be found in my GitHub profile.
