I am a PhD student in the Computer Science Department, School of Computer Science, at Carnegie Mellon University with a research interest in database management systems (DBMSs). More specifically, I am exploring the design and engineering challenges of “self-driving” systems. I am extremely fortunate to be advised by Andy Pavlo, and I am a member of the Database Group (CMU-DB), Parallel Data Lab, and SNAP Lab.
I am one of the lead developers of NoisePage, CMU-DB’s new in-memory relational DBMS that is designed for self-driving operation.
I previously completed a MS in Computer Science at CMU, graduating in December 2018. Prior to graduate school, I worked at Western Digital for 8 years performing firmware validation on storage devices while earning a BS in Computer Science & Engineering at UC Irvine.
