I am a PhD student at Stanford University in the Secure Computer Systems lab. My advisor is Prof. David Mazieres, and I have worked closely with Prof. Dan Boneh and Prof. Mendel Rosenblum. My research interests are in building reliable and easier to manage systems. Often my work spans many layers of the software stack from architecture to the application. I enjoy working across operating system, distributed systems, architecture, and compilers. You can find more details about my vision, approach, and direction in my research statement.
Prior to Stanford, I worked for VMware, Inc. as the technical lead for the Storage vMotion and vMotion products. I also designed and built the memory compression cache used by ESX.
I completed my M.Eng. and B.S. in electrical engineering at MIT.
The following three papers are representative:
