I completed my PhD in the department of computer science and engineering at University of California, San Diego.

I will be joining Google in the fall.

I worked in the Non-Volatile Systems Lab under the guidance of professors Steve Swanson and Rajesh Gupta. My research area is computer systems architecture, and my interests include new system architectures for exploiting emerging technologies, designing scalable and efficient storage systems, and hardware/software support for parallel and heterogeneous architectures. My most recent work focused on how to integrate new, non-volatile memory technologies such as phase-change memory into computer systems to provide fast and safe access to storage.

In yet another past life, I was a grad student at Stanford. I had the opportunity to TA the following courses.
