I am a sixth (and final) year Ph.D student in Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington - Seattle. I build efficient and reliable systems. I am advised by Tom Anderson and Arvind Krishnamurthy. At different stages of my study in graduate school, I receive valuable mentorship from Manya Ghobadi, Hongqiang Harry Liu, Vincent Liu, Ratul Mahajan, Dan Ports, Xi Wang, and Yibo Zhu. Before graduate school, I got my bachelor's degree from University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign advised by Nitin Vaidya.

I am on the academic job market!
