I'm a software engineer at Google, where I help develop our distributed storage infrastructure. Previously, I completed my Ph.D. in computer science with the TERTL group at UCLA.

My research interests include storage system consistency, performance, and usability. More broadly, they span systems, programming languages, and theory.

Emacs, a TERTL turtle

I'm a software engineer at Google, developing distributed storage software. Previously, I completed my Ph.D. in computer science with the TERTL group at UCLA, where I researched storage system consistency, performance, and usability, alongside our turtles. More broadly, my interests span systems, programming languages, and theory. I was also a member of the LUG and the ACM and TAed CS 111 (undergrad operating systems) for 2005–2006.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy biking, running, hiking, and backpacking; photography; and spouts of reading.

My undergrad days were at UVa, where I frolicked and schemed with friends in Theta Tau, ACM, Math Club, Brown, Honor, and the computer science and math departments. I've helped lasso computer science problems and systems while at UCLA, UVa, MIT, Microsoft Research, VMware, Google, Appian, Microsoft, Dynetics, and the US Army AMRDEC. Home is Huntsville, Alabama.
