I‘m a PhD Candidate in the Parallel Computing Laboratory (ParLab) at UC Berkeley. I'm interested in a bunch of topics in computer science including mobile and cloud computing, energy efficiency, parallel computer architectures, operating systems, machine learning, dynamic optimization, and user experience.  I’m advised by Krste Asanovic and David Patterson at Berkeley and Burton Smith at Microsoft Research.  

In the Fall, I’ll be starting a postdoc jointly with NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) and Microsoft Research NYC to work on designing systems for big data, particularly for applications in urban informatics.
