I am a postdoc in the RISE lab at Berkeley. My interests lie in distributed systems, operating systems, and large scale data processing.

Before joining Berkeley, I spent my time redesigning the software stack for warehouse scale data centres as part of the Systems Research Group at University of Cambridge. My research at Cambridge was supported by a Google Fellowship in distributed systems, which I received. Previously, I graduated with an MEng degree in Computing and Software Engineering from Imperial College London.

In the past, I was fortune to intern in the cluster management team at Google, in the Data Infrastructure team at Facebook, and at Microsoft Research.
