About Me

I'm a fourth-year graduate student at Stanford University. I'm studying computer science, interested in systems research, and am advised by Matei Zaharia and Peter Bailis. I'm currently working on building new abstractions for distributed systems. Some projects I have worked on include Willump (MLSys 2020), MacroBase (Best of VLDB 2019) and Arachne (OSDI 2018). I did my undergrad at Harvard, where I worked with Professor Margo Seltzer on the Automatically Scalable Computation (ASC) project, writing my senior thesis on my work on it. I also worked with Professor Alexander Rush on predicting congressional voting records from bill text (EMNLP 2016).
