I have graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University. There, I worked with Professor David Andersen doing research in the areas of distributed systems, operating systems, and practical data structures and algorithms. You can find my PhD thesis here.
My main project was Egalitarian Paxos, which I presented at SOSP 2013. Follow-up work on better leasing strategies in Paxos won the Best Paper award at SOCC 2014.
