I am a final-year Ph.D. student advised by Dave Andersen in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. I also worked closely with Andy Pavlo, Michael Kaminsky, and Kimberly Keeton. I received my B.S. degrees in Computer Engineering, Computer Sciences, and Mathematics from University of Wisconsin-Madison advised by Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau.

My research interests center on computer systems and databases. I have a particular interest in designing space-efficient and high-performance in-memory search structures, like SuRF.
