About

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the NetSys Lab at UC Berkeley. My research focuses on enabling high performance for networked applications in datacenters.

I received my Ph.D. in 2019 from MIT CSAIL, advised by Hari Balakrishnan and Adam Belay. My thesis proposed a system called Shenango that enables servers in datacenters to provide both low tail latency and high CPU efficiency. During my Ph.D., I was supported by an NSF Fellowship, a Hertz Foundation Fellowship, 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.
