Academic Interests

I love datacenter networks and endhost flow control!

I'm currently researching optical datacenter networks, generally focusing on link and IP layer systems to interface with and effectively utilize optical hardware. I also am interested in network synchronization protocols, particularly within datacenter environments.


I'm a PhD student in the Systems and Networking group at UC San Diego. I'm advised by George Porter, and also work with Alex Snoeren.

I completed my Bachelor's of Engineering degree in May of 2014 and Master's of Engineering degree in May of 2015. Both degrees were completed at Cornell University.

Personal Interests

When I'm not ripping apart the Linux networking stack, I'm plotting out strategies for one of the many boardgames I play. On warmer, sunny days, I can also be found hiking around San Diego.
