I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at UCLA. My research interests are broadly in systems and networking. My recent work has focused on building practical systems to improve the performance and debugging of large-scale, distributed applications for both users and developers. My research has been recognized with a Sloan Research Fellowship, an NSF CAREER Award, a Google Faculty Research Award, an ACM SoCC Best Paper Award, and an IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize. Prior to joining UCLA, I received a PhD from MIT, where I was advised by Hari Balakrishnan and James Mickens. Before that, I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University.

News: I'm excited to be joining the Princeton CS Department in July 2021! If you are interested in working with me, please apply to the Princeton CS graduate program, and mention my name in your application. If you are already at Princeton, please send me an email and we can find a time to meet.
