I previously was a graduate student in the database group at CSAIL, MIT where I earned my master's degree in EECS on Silo. My thesis advisor was Samuel Madden. Before that, I was an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, and received dual degrees in computer science and mechanical engineering. At Berkeley, I was a member of the RADLab (now AMPLab).
My research interests are all over the place. I have worked on multicore databases, database security, and more recently statistical database privacy. This summer, I'm currently taking a break from all of that, and working to build a fast, open source inference engine for various non-parametric Bayesian models.
