About Me

I am a postdoctoral associate in the Database Group at MIT CSAIL, working with Michael Stonebraker. I received my Ph.D. from Brown University in 2012, where I was advised by Ugur Cetintemel. Before that, I was a scientist working at the US Navy research base in Newport, RI. My research interests include scientific data management, database workload modeling, and cloud computing. I am especially focused on making data-driven science applications fast and scalable and am working in the context of SciDB. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, sailing, and traveling.
