About Me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student advised by Arvind Krishnamurthy and Hank Levy in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Washington. I received my B.S. in Computer Science in 2014 from Duke University, where I was advised by Pankaj K. Agarwal and Thomas Mølhave.


My research interests are in operating systems and distributed systems. I most recently worked on Diamond, a wide-area distributed storage system with strong guarantees, with Irene Zhang, Pedro Fonseca, Brandon Holt, and Raymond Cheng.

In the past, I've worked in robotics, geographic information systems (GIS), and computational biology.
