I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. Currently, I am working with Prof. Tom Anderson and Prof. Arvind Krishnamurthy. I am interested in distributed systems and machine learning. Before joining UW, I obtained a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Physics from Williams College.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in distributed systems, networking and large-scale machine learning. I am currently working on projects related to datacenter networking.
