I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The University at Buffalo. I work with Dr. Steve Ko, my doctoral advisor, and Dr. Karthik Dantu, in the Reliable Mobile Systems group. In general, my research interests are in systems and storage. My current focus is on creating personalized storage on mobile systems. In the past, I have also worked with Dr. Vipin Chaudhary to build next generation storage systems for the cloud.

Recently, I presented my dissertation proposal, titled, Flexible Data Management on Mobile Systems. You can read the abstract here.

I have about four years of software development experience in the industry, having worked in Amazon, NetApp, and Cisco. I am always keen to work on interesting projects and looking for full time opportunities in the field of systems research (starting Aug 2018). If you want to work with me, hire me, read my research statements, or just say "Hi", drop me an email.
