I am a 5th year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Emory University where I am fortunate to work with Dr. Ymir Vigfusson as part of the SimBioSys Lab.

My research interests span storage systems, cloud systems, and data-center applications. The goal of my research is improve the performance and resource efficiency of large-scale distributed systems.

I have three main research interests right now:

  • Caching Systems: workload characterization and theoritical study
  • Serverless Computing: cluster management and programming model.
  • Content Delivery Network (CDN): simulation and performance improvement

If you're interested in my research or just want to chat, feel free to reach out—I'm always happy to help and connect.
