About Me

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student at the University of Washington Paul G. Allen School. I work with Tom Anderson in the Systems Lab. I'm broadly interested in operating systems and distributed systems and the intersection of the two areas. In my current research, I'm working on improving reliability and development velocity of Linux kernel modules and providing predictable performance in the cloud.

I completed my undergraduate degree at The University of Texas at Austin. While there, I did research with Simon Peter. For my honors thesis, I studied the affects of applying high-performance, userspace networking to MapReduce. I've also done four industry internships, all at Google. There, I've worked on an internal traffic shaping tool, Google Cloud Dataflow, Google Compute Engine, and ChromeOS.
