I am a computer science PhD candidate at UC Berkeley, working with Joe Hellerstein and the BOOM team. My research interests lie at the intersection of databases, distributed systems and programming languages: in particular, I want to know how the lessons from the first may be incorporated into the third, and to what degree this mitigates the difficulties of the second. To this end, my team is designing a collection of declarative languages for specifying and implementing complex distributed systems in a data-centric manner.

Beginning Fall 2015, I will be an Assistant Professor at UC Santa Cruz. I will be looking for PhD students!
