About

I am a sixth year Ph.D. student in the Networks and Mobile Systems group at MIT CSAIL, advised by Hari Balakrishnan and Adam Belay. My research focuses on computer networks and distributed systems. I am currently working on a system that enables servers in datacenters to provide both low tail latency and high CPU efficiency.

I am supported by an NSF Fellowship and a Hertz Foundation Fellowship. Previously, I received an Irwin Mark Jacobs and Joan Klein Jacobs Presidential Fellowship and a Google Anita Borg Scholarship.

I graduated from Princeton University in 2013 with a B.S.E. in Computer Science. At Princeton, I was advised by Jennifer Rexford, Michael J. Freedman, and Thomas Funkhouser.
