I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Computer Science Department at Berkeley Lab working with Prof. Aydin Buluc and Prof. Katherine Yelick. My research interests lie at the intersection of systems and algorithms. I design and build theoretically well-founded data structures for big data problems in computational biology, storage, and streaming.
Previously, I spent one year as a postdoc at the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University working with Prof. Carl Kingsford. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Stony Brook University, and defended my dissertation, Fast and Space-Efficient Maps: Shrinking Big Data Down to Size. At Stony brook University, I was co-advised by Prof. Michael Bender and Prof. Rob Johnson. (Dissertation committee: Mike Ferdman, Rob Patro, Guy Blelloch.)
I am currently applying for faculty positions. I am interested in positions both in the US and abroad. Here is my material. Please reach out to me if you think I would be a good addition to your department or research group!
I love outdoors and occasionally like to scribble my experience in a blog.
