I am an assistant professor in the Allen School 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.

We thank the NSF, DoE, DARPA, Adobe, Huawei, Intel, and Google for their generous support of our group's research.

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.
