Pittsburgh, PA 15206
I am a Ph.D. 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 operating system and DBMS codesign opportunities via safe kernel extension mechanisms like eBPF. I am extremely fortunate to be advised by Andy Pavlo, and I am a member of the Database Group (CMU-DB), Parallel Data Lab (PDL), and Systems, Networking, and Performance (SNAP) Lab.
I previously completed a M.Sc. 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 B.Sc. in Computer Science & Engineering at UC Irvine and Irvine Valley College.
