I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, where I work in the Systems Lab and am advised by Dan Ports and Tom Anderson. My interests lie in the theory and practice of distributed systems.

My work at UW has been generously supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship as well as Jeff Dean - Heidi Hopper and Gary Kildall Fellowships.

Before coming to UW, I attended the University of Texas at Austin, where I received bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Plan II Honors and was a member of the Dean's Scholars and Turing Scholars honors programs.
