I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, affiliated with the database and programming languages and software engineering research groups. I am also an affiliate member of the eScience Institute. My research interests include program analysis, program synthesis, improving database application performance, and building big systems in general. Some current research themes:

If you are a UW student interested in doing research in these areas please send me an email.

Before joining UW, I was a graduate student in the MIT database group and the computer-aided programming group, working with Professors Sam Madden and Armando Solar-Lezama. I worked on tools that make use of programming language techniques to improve application performance.
