I'm a PhD student in the Computer Science division working in operating systems and networking.  My advisor is Professor David CullerIn 2003 I graduated from M.I.T. with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and spent several years working at Oracle Corporation after graduation. I am a member of the LoCal project and a member of the Wireless Embedded Systems group at UC Berkeley. In December, I'll be joining the Mobile Research Group at IBM Research at T.J. Watson Research Center in New York.
 

My research interests are in distributed systems, networking, and sensor networks.  I am also interested in ubiquitous and energy-efficient computing.

Current Projects


File system for the internet of things.
